Mark your 2017 calendar, program your GPS and start forming your team(s) for perhaps the
BEST ULTRA RELAY EVENT in the Midwest.
The Hil100+py Relay is held at the Wayne E. Dannehl National Cross Country Course on the campus of UW Parkside in Kenosha, Wisconsin. In the simplest terms, this is a running tailgate party on one of the best high school and collegiate dedicated cross country courses in the country. There is no limit to the number of runners per team, but there is a minimum of two runners per team. Each team will run 33 loops on the 5K course. Not everyone has to run the same number of loops, but everyone does have to have a great time! We track the number of loops for each team, provide loop splits for all 33 loops, and stream continuous live updates on a large screen near the exchange zone.
Each loop you have the option to hand off to a teammate or run another loop based on your team's strategy, but either way, you will start and finish in the XC Thrillogy Village and to the sounds of the DJ who will be keeping the party on the right note. There will be great food served by the UW Parkside Cross Country and Track teams throughout the day and fun events to keep you entertained while you are awaiting your turn to run (or run again)!
New for 2017, we will have assigned Team Tent Areas. This will be determined by the order in which your team signed up! Be sure to be the first to sign up to get the best and closest spot!
The Hilloopy is run in conjunction with the Hot Hilly Hair Ultra.
Why you will love the Hilloopy 100+ Relay!
- Tired of Complicated logistics of a point to point ultra relay? We are too! Don't worry about splitting up your team in vans and only meeting at major exchange areas. Send your runner out on a 3 mile loop and wait for him or her to come back to you!
- Maybe you want more miles? On each 10 person team, there will be "4 bonus loops." You can add 1, 2, 3,.... or all 4 to your personal log! Lots of options to "go long".
- Looking to relive your glory days of cross country? This is dedicated , nationally recognized XC course. Let 'er rip!
