1 Mile:
This course consists of two loops around Riverside Park along the Mississippi River. Because you will cross the start/finish area twice during the course (1/2 mile and finish), you will get official times through both of these points. The course is wide open and is runner and walker friendly!

4 Mile:
Back by popular demand, this course will take runners from Riverside Park over the Cass St. bridge to Pettibone Island and back to finish at Riverside Park! This out-and-back course will feature some of the best views you'll ever find of the Mississippi River with the bluffs and the city of La Crosse. This is one event you won't want to miss!

Kids Race:
Bring the whole family out for this year's event and let those kids run around Riverside Park with three different distances (200 meters, 1/4 mile, 1/2 mile)! The three races will start in a staggered order, sending the 1/2 mile first, followed by the 1/4 mile, then finally the 200 meters. Sign the kids up now, and choose their distance on race morning.
