Alpine Valley Resort is the new home of this great event, and we could not be more excited!
The Coureurs de Bois Trail Run and Relay (which means to run in the woods), is a perfect way to kick off the start of summer. The estimated distances of short loop (3.3miles) distances of 3.3m or 6.6 miles and long loop (7.5miles) distances of 7.5m, 15m, or 22.5 miles for individual events or a 13.2 mile 2-person relay alternating loops on the short loop. The course is challenging and scenic as you embrace mountain bike trails and with elevation gain on the long loop of nearly 900 feet per loop, make sure you are ready for some fun!
This is a Prize Money Event! The designated distance for the prize money event is 15 miles. This is how it works. Those wanting to enter for the prize will pay an additional $20.00 when signing up. Once you have "skin in the game", your next task is to run as hard as you can. Your time will then be age and gender graded using https://runbundle.com/tools/age-grading-calculator These graded times will be used to determine the winners. Prize money will be awarded as follows 50% Winner, 30% 2nd Place, and 20% 3rd Place.
Once done hang out and socialize at the base of the ski hill enjoying food and drink. If you would like to stay at the Alpine Valley Resort and have a room steps from the start/finish, reference Kenosha Running Company when booking your room for our special room rate.
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.
