There are many answers to why our participants participate in our events, but they all can agree on the fact, when they are running/walking the trails, they are doing so with passion, devotion, and undivided attention.
Dirty Dog Dare is the CaniCross companion event to the Meraki Trail Run and is the final event of the 2019-20 CaniCross season. CaniCross athletes will have a choice of 4.5 or 9.0 mile events as a final test of their trail fitness.
If you are new to CaniCross, please note that this event is beginner-friendly and special CaniCross equipment is not required. If you are interested in trying CaniCross equipment or upgrading your current set up, visit our boutique at 1706 - 22nd Ave., Kenosha where we will happily fit your dog (and you) and you can test run the equipment on our property or the adjoining bike trail.
Ran in conjunction with the Meraki Trail Run is 4.5, 9.0, or 13.5 miles of immersion in the experience of trail running in the spring. This event is perfect for all fitness levels and is dog-friendly for those not interested in participating in the CaniCross Event. Bullfrogs and songbirds will be your soundtrack. Muskrats, deer, forest, and wildflowers will be your backdrop. The new spring grass will give you the bounce in your step to complete your chosen distance (or perhaps more)!
PLEASE NOTE: Richard Bong State Recreation Area is part of the Wisconsin State Park system and there is a vehicle admission fee. This fee supports the staffing and maintenance of the parks throughout the state of Wisconsin. This admission fee is not part of your race entry fee and will need to be paid to enter the park. Daily pass rates for vehicles with Wisconsin plates is $8.00. The fee for out of state plates is $15.00.
XCThrillogy is offering RUNSURANCE on this event.

Select RUNSURANCE as an option during registration if you are interested.
