Questions? Please contact us at info@414events.com.

Can I push a stroller or bring my pup?

Due to size of the paths, pups and strollers are not allowed on the course. We love dogs- in fact we have 3 at home. However, the crowds of folks (who may or may not be as much of fans as we are) can be unpredictable and can startle a pup in an instant, or may not be paying attention and trip over a leash or Spot himself.

When is the registration deadline?

Where does the money go?

Your registration covers the cost to put on the event. We use it pay for the permits, event apparel, medal, post-race goodies, etc. We are a local, LLC event company from Wisconsin, and try to use as many local vendors as possible to keep the dollars within our community. We partner with a local food pantry for a race day food drive, and they receive 100% of the food and monetary donations that are given during the registration process. We average 1 lb per participant for each event we do and have raised over 24,000 lbs of food to date! We do work with a variety of non-profits as well, where 100% of the proceeds go to the charity. Follow us on Facebook (facebook.com/414events) for updates on those events!
