June is Wisconsin's reward for surviving the blustery winter months and the gray muddy days of spring and there is no better way to commemorate the start of green and warmth than a run in the woods.
The Coureurs de Bois Trail Run and Relay (which means to run in the woods), is a celebration of the start of summer. Taking place in Petrifying Springs Park, in Kenosha, this trail event is perfect for all fitness levels. The event distances of 4, 8, 12, or 16 miles individual event or a 16 mile 2 person relay will fit all athletes, from those who soldiered through winter training to those who snuggled in and waited winter out.
The course is a 4-mile loop that starts in a wide grassy area and leads you to the single track trails that meander through the woods within the park and UW Parkside. The hardwood forest provides the perfect distraction from the rolling hills and possible short steep climbs (depending on the mood of the race director). The optional chilly river crossing will serve as the reminder of the iciness of winter the promise of warmer days to come.
Enjoy the company of your trail friends, new and old, after you have completed your event at the after-party which features crepes, a fruit bar, and other great food and drinks.
For those that enjoy running or walking with their dog, this is a dog-friendly event. There will not, however, be a separate CaniCross division
