ROVER's RULES for CaniCross:

Pre-post run or walk, all dogs must be on a short leash. Dogs must be under control around other dogs, runners & walkers.  Owners, please be aware of children approaching your dog.  Clean up after your dog.  No dogs inside buildings.  We want this to be a fun, safe event for everyone and every dog.


The Kenosha Running Company is humbled and thankful to announce that all military veterans, active serviceman, and their spouses will be able to run/walk all of our 2018 events for FREE.  If you are a veteran active serviceman, or a spouse, please email us (stephaniez@kenosharunningcompany.com) or call (262) 925-0300 to receive a discount code for the FREE entry.  Please note, you will have to show your military ID at packet pick up.

If you are not involved in the military, please consider a donation to the military program so it will be maintainable and sustainable for many years to come.  Donations may be made online with your race registration to the XCT Military Program or simply mail your check (made out to Kenosha Running Company) to KRC, P.O. Box 126, Kenosha, WI 53141. 

3 miles, 6 miles, 9 miles and 12 miles.
The 9 mile distance will offer prize money based on age/gender and graded times.

KD Park is the perfect location for the Hills are Alive Trail Run and Walk.  This  looped course, allows you to enjoy the varied landscapes of this former gravel quarry and 39 acre lake.  The beginning of the loop takes you around the lake on wide groomed paths and some picturesque single track.  The view is so spectacular that you might be inspired to take a few selfies during your trail adventure! Your circle back is single track through the woods where deer and trail runners play! The trail is well maintained and not highly technical so this course is welcoming, but is also challenging due to the hills.

Once you have completed your loops, you will return to a St. Patrick’s celebration with corned beef, cabbage, and carrots and potatoes.  Craft beer, soda, and great company make Hills Are Alive Trail Run/Walk the perfect kick start to your spring training!

The 9 mile trail event is a trail race for PRIZE MONEY.  It will be age graded.  Age grading is a way of putting all race participants on a level playing field, regardless of age or gender.  For example a 24 year old male running a 5K event in 30 minutes will have an age graded time of 30 minutes, a 68 year old man running it in 30 minutes would have an age graded time of 22:47, and a 13 year old girl would have an age graded time of 27:45.  This unique twist will put a little running fire under everyone's feet as the fastest time may not necessarily win!

This event is part  of the 2018 CaniCross Event Series.  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 mile loop. While it can be competitive, it also can be a fun way to test out both your and your dog’s fitness.  For more information about your CaniCross Events, visit our website, www.traildogrunners.com

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