Runners will be gathering at Lapham Peak State Park to see how many miles they can cover in the time frame selected; the 12 and 6 hour divisions have day or night options.  There is also the "Distance" division, for runners who want to cover a certain distance (such as a marathon, 50K, 50 miles, etc.), but feel they may need more time than the 6 or 12 hours.  Join us, and let's see how FAR you can go!

2023 Registration (on-line open March 1st through noon August 28th)

Directions:  Lapham Peak State Park is located west of Milwaukee along Hwy 94 (exit 285, County C).  Head south on Hwy C about 1 mile; the park entrance is on the left.  The Evergreen lot is the first right after the park entrance station.

Parking Stickers:  All vehicles are required to have a state park parking sticker.  If you do not have one, we will provide a daily sticker for your vehicle at no charge (additional stickers for crew and spectator vehicles will need to be purchased if required).

Distance division runners may start at 9:00 am, and at every hour thereafter until 8:00 pm.

Course: The loop is on a wide, gentle trail (mixture of gravel, grass, and dirt) 1 mile long; elevation gain is 72‘ per loop.  It will be lighted at night, but runners may use a flashlight or headlamp if they choose.  There will be chip timing to record laps, and we will switch direction every 3 hours.

Aid Station: There will be a manned aid station at the start/finish of the loop, with a wide variety of foods and fluids.  Hammer Nutrition is a sponsor, so we will have HEED, HammerGel, and Endurolytes products.  NOTE: We are a cupless event; runners will be responsible for carrying their own container (bottle, vest, reusable cup, etc.) to refill along the way.  If you do not already have a reusable cup, we will provide you with one at check-in, courtesy of Hammer Nutrition!  Runners can also bring their personnel supplies, items you know work well for you, and set up right along the course with a table/chair, tent, canopy, etc.

Pacing: Pacing is not allowed in any of the events, but family and friends are welcome to crew for you and accompany you while you are taking walking breaks.
