Will you hydrate me?


One water station will be located about half way through the course as well as the Start and Finish Line.




Prizes?!?! How do I receive raffle tickets for the prize drawing?


For every 3 non-perishable items that either participants or spectators bring for Paul's Pantry, you will receive a raffle ticket for some awesome raffle prizes! To be eligible, donations must be received prior to race start.




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. Furry Friends are welcome at the finish line with a friend or family member outside of the crowd.




I don't run....can I walk?


Yes! There is a 30 minute/mile pace on the course. We ask that walkers move towards the back of the crowd at the starting line to allow for runners to keep their preferred pace.

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 18,000 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!
