The weather outside may be frightful, but running on the trails is always delightful!

The wooded single track trails along the Pike River and through the park provide the perfect balance between charm and challenge.  The charm will be the rock, roots, and hills.  The challenge will be what Mother Nature has in store!

The 3.5 mile walk and 3.5 or 6.4 mile run will start cross county style before the course leads you on an adventure on some of the trails of this 350 acre park consisting of giant trees, rivers, and streams.  As always, the course will be slightly different as those from our previous events.  We like to keep you on your toes!  But, the one thing that will never change is the optional (weather permitting) river crossing!

If you are wondering what CaniCross is, you are not alone.  It is similar to mushing, but instead of pulling a sled, your dog is pulling you through the trails.  All that is required is a gang line, harness, and CaniCross belt. This event is a timed three and half mile loop. While it can be competitive, it also can be a fun way to test out both your and your dog’s fitness. To learn more about CaniCross, please visit

This event is perfect for all fitness levels and is dog friendly for those not interested in participating in the CaniCross Event.

Kenosha Running Company will donate part of the proceeds of this event to the Kenosha County Parks Trail Maintenance and Restoration Fund to help maintain and protect the trails that we all use and love.
