Petrifying Springs County Park in Kenosha, WI, is the location and provides perhaps the best trails along the Pike River.  This is an ideal trail running and walking event for the more adventure-minded runners and walkers.  You will encounter single track trails, groomed trails, up and down hills, and, if the Pike River cooperates, a river crossing (the water at the crossing points is typically less than 12 inches deep).  If the course sounds a little challenging, at times it can be, but it is welcoming and we promise that you will love this course!

Coureurs de Bois (which means to run in the woods) offers four different distances for runners; 4 miles, 8 miles, 12 miles and 16 miles and two different distance for walkers; 4 miles and 8 miles.  Runners can also run the 16 miles as a two person relay, alternating the 4 mile loop. The relay as it turns out can be a great event for couples with younger children, while one runs the other is playing with the kids!  Last year a couple told me it was the first time they could run the same event together!

For those that enjoy running or walking with their dog, this is a dog friendly event!
We started a tradition last year of serving crepes and other great food, beer and soda and will continue that tradition!
