50k Relay

Want to savor the beautiful Fall weather and this fantastic course and take in the spectacle of the 50K, but without the whole “ultramarathon” thing? Up to four people can sign up for a relay team for the 50K event! Event registration prices are the same for the 12.5K individual and 50K Relay options ($55 USD).

We’re partnering with our friends, Chippewa Valley Trail Runners and Blue Ox Running to host a free race-week event on the 5K course, on Halloween Night! Spooooky!! At 6:00p.m., Tuesday October 31st, all interested (families encouraged!)  are welcome to meet at the expo side trailhead at Lowes Creek for this free 5K fun run that includes trailside trick-or-treating! Participants who show up in costume at this event will receive a raffle ticket for Saturday’s Blue Ox drawing, and our overall winner for the costume contest will receive an extra ticket and some swag! This run will also count as part of CVTR’s Dirt Series.
