The Pike River Trail Run & Walk will start like a cross country meet and then you will experience single track, rocks, roots, water and hills! Some running will be on a paved bike path, golf course, groomed trails and single track rugged trails. You will cross/run through the Pike River two times (you have the option of running/walking around the water and using the bridge) throughout the 6.5 miles. The Trail Walk will follow the same trail as the runners for about 1 mile, you will then be on some of the best walking trails in Southeast Wisconsin. The trees will be bursting with Fall colors and if you like bring your camera/smart phone for some great pictures and selfies!
