Evil Smiley Veteran's Day Run Race Description

The Evil Smiley Veteran's Day Run is the perfect way to celebrate and remember those who have served our country.  It is our privilege to be able to take the torch from Jared Bane who started this event in 2013, in order to recognize and honor all of our Military Veterans, Active Duty, Reserves, Spouses, and Friends of the Military.  Our mission will be the same, to honor those who served.

This event will evolve in some ways in order to grow the event and recognize the Heroes in our community and beyond. We have changed the start/finish of the event to the University of Wisconsin – Parkside outdoor track.

When signing up, you will have the opportunity to secure a flag that will line the start/finish area to honor or in memory of a military hero in your life. We will have a staggered start time. We will have a post-event party and ceremony.


Proceeds from this event will support the continued growth of our Military Program.  Kenosha Running Company's Military Program provides free or discounted race entries to active duty or retired military personnel and their spouse to 11 of our 14 events throughout the year.  This unique program helps to provide a way for military personnel to remain physically active while also fostering a sense of community.


The courses details:
We will start and finish on the outdoor 400-meter track at UW-Parkside. Everyone will exit the track area and run up to University Drive and turn right, taking you around the campus, those running 2 miles will continue on University Drive and back to the track.  Those running the 10K distance, will make a right-hand turn at the Southeast entrance of the University and continue on the Kenosha County Bike Path through Petrifying Springs County Park. Once you have reached County Road A, runners will continue on the bike path and circle through the park and then crossing County Road A again on top of the hill and running back through a park on the bike path turning left at the Avenue of the Arts.  Runners will then turn left onto University Drive and will run counter-clockwise back to the track following the same route you took at the start. 


  • 2-mile run/walk (able to finish in 90 minutes). Start time 10:40 a.m. This distance will take place on the road that loops around the UW Parkside campus.
  • 10K run (minimum pace is 15 minutes per mile).  Start time 10:30 a.m.  This distance will start on the track, follow the road that loops the UW Parkside campus clockwise, head northwest on the bike path and follows the multi-use path through picturesque Petrifying Springs Park.  Runners will return to the track on University Drive, circling counterclockwise, returning to the track the way they came.
