Petrifying Springs Park, Kenosha, WI
(Hwy. 31 between Hwy. A and Hwy. E, 4 miles east of I-94)
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.
Over the river and through the woods… and hills and more woods…. and more hills… and then through the river….and then repeat. ~ Pike River Trail Run & Walk
The river side trails and wooded single track at Petrifying Springs Park are the perfect backdrop for the Pike River Trail Run & Walk. This 3.5 mile walk or run and 6.5 mile run is the best way to embrace the changing of seasons and enjoy fall in Wisconsin at its peak.
The event will start like a cross country meet and then you will experience single track, rocks, roots, water and hills! The course will take you through some unexpected turns, but the excitement will be the beauty of the nature that surrounds you. No XCThrillogy Petrifying Springs event would be complete without an optional Pike River crossing, so plan on a crossing or two to add to the fun of this fall event.
The Pike River Trail Run & Walk is part of the 2017 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 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. Please visit our Canicross website http://www.traildogrunners.com/ for more information CaniCross and this event.
This event is perfect for all fitness levels and is dog friendly for those not interested in participating in the CaniCross Event.
This event is also part of the Kenosha County Fall Wheel Ride presented by Kenosha County Parks and Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser which includes a 5.8 mile and 2.3 mile bike rides starting from Simmons Island and Bose Elementary School and finishing at Petrifying Springs Park. The finish of the Fall Wheel Ride and Pike River Trail Run & Walk is at Shelter One where everyone can enjoy the great food, drinks and other fun activities. Visit www.kenoshacounty.org/publicworks/parks or call Kenosha County Parks at 262-857-1869 for complete information on the day's bike event.
