The Dirty Dog Dare is the first event of the 2020-21 CaniCross season and will be the perfect final test of you and your pup's fitness. We have thrown down the gauntlet and picked the perfect trails at Richard Bong State Recreation Area. Do you dare to run a 4.5-mile single loop? Or how about a double (2 loop - 9.0 miles) or a triple dare (3 loops - 13.5 miles)? Any distance you choose, we know you will have a doggone good time!
Meraki Trail Adventure is the human only companion event to the Dirty Dog Dare CaniCross event. Dog free athletes will have a choice of 3.5 or 9.0 miles.
Meraki is a Greek word that means “to do something with passion, with absolute devotion, with undivided attention”. There are many answers to why our participants participate in our events, but they all can agree on the fact, when they are running/walking the trails, they are doing so with passion, devotion, and undivided attention.
PLEASE NOTE: Richard Bong State Recreation Area is part of the Wisconsin State Park system and there is a vehicle admission fee. This fee supports the staffing and maintenance of the parks throughout the state of Wisconsin. This admission fee is not part of your race entry fee and will need to be paid to enter the park.
