The longer distance runs around Lake Monona. A 20 km loop, clockwise, on winding residential streets and bike paths close to the scenic shore of beautiful Lake Monona, with moderately rolling hills. The 5 km mark comes shortly after you enter Waunona Way. A spectacular state capitol skyline beckons as you cross Lake Monona on the causeway towards the 10 km mark. You descend into Olbrich park shortly after the 15 km mark. The finish line is the same as the start line on Nichols Rd.
Splits: There are painted marks on, and signs to the side of, the course at every mile and every 5 km. We normally have someone calling times at the 5km, 10 km and 15 km markers. All finish times recorded until finish line closes 3 hours after the start. Chip timing and digital clock at the finish.
Aid Stations: near 5 km, 10 km, & 15 km with water and friendly volunteers to steer you in the right direction.
Post Race Ceremonies: Beverages and fruit provided by our sponsors will be available near the finish line, free to all runners. Beer is provided by Capital Brewery!
