Once again we are happy to offer accommodations for our Hilloopy and Hot Hilly Hairy participants at UW Parkside. There are some changes from previous years that you will need to note:

  • Based on feedback from the university and reservation history, reservations can only be made for both Friday and Saturday nights (2-night stay).
  • The private room rate is $106.00. This includes linens (sheets, pillow, blanket, a hand towel, a washcloth, and a bath towel). You will need to provide any other additional linens needed. Reserve HERE.
  • The shared room rate (2 people in the room) is $166.00. This includes 2 sets of linens (sheets, pillow, blanket, a hand towel, a washcloth, and a bath towel).

  • Room reservations need to be made prior to June 7th, 2020 will be provided linens. Rooms will no longer be able to reserve after July 1st, 2020.
  • Check-in and check-out will be handled by the Kenosha Running Company staff and will be done at the event site (UW Parkside Cross Country course).
  • Remember, you are staying in a dorm room. This means there will be gender-specific shared bathrooms, noise, limited privacy, and you may encounter people from other events. If they are a runner, encourage them to join our event next year!

We are gearing up for this great annual event...

mark your calendar and register today!

The Hot Hilly Hairy Ultra Solo and Relay is truly a one size fits all event! Run in conjunctions with the Hilloopy, This is one heck of a RUNNING TAILGATE PARTY!

Taking place on the UW Parkside 5K Cross County Course, the Hot Hilly Hairy has relay and individual distances to fit all abilities and desires. 

Ultra-Monsters will relish in the challenge of The 18 Hour Death March, in which we track how many loops of the 5K course you can complete between the hours of 6 a.m. and midnight.

If you are less of a Monster and more of a Beast, there are several other ultra-distances to choose from including an 85K and a 50K, or you can take The 65K Dragon Dare by running a 30K at 6 a.m., a 20K starting at noon, a 10K at 6 p.m. and the Charge the Knight 5K at 9 p.m.

The looped 5K course, allows you to set up your personal aid station by the start/finish line which will have designated tables for ultra-runners in addition to two general aid stations on the 5K course.  Best of all there is no time limit to finish your distance (official timing ends after 20 hours).

If you love the trails, but not the longer distances, you can choose from 30K, 20K. 10K, or 5K distances.  The 20K, 10K and 5K events each have three different start times, (6 a.m., noon, and 6 p.m.) so they can fit easily into any summer schedule.   

If you are a creature of the night, we would love to have you join us for the Charge the Knight 5K!  New this year, this race starts at 9 p.m. and will be one loop of the UW Parkside 5K course! 

For those who would like to run a relay, but aren’t interested in running over 100 miles, we have something for you as well!  The Hot Hilly Hairy has an 85K relay, 50K relay, and 30K relay.  There are no limits to the number of teammates and there is no limit to your amount of fun!  Hot Hilly Hairy relay teams can set up their home base alongside the Hil100py teams so resting runners can chill and cheer with like-minded individuals!

This is definitely a tailgate party-like environment and you are encouraged to bring family and friends to enjoy this great event, and have some fantastic food and craft beverages.  We will have a DJ playing music throughout the event, live status time and place updates on a 36" screen.

Runners and Walkers are welcome to embrace whatever distance they feel they can finish.
