Survival is Insufficient Race Description

Are you ready to test your navigation skills and fitness?


All abilities of runners & walkers are invited to explore the campus & surrounding grounds for this unique event.  The course will start at the UW-Parkside outdoor track and finish in Petrifying Springs Park in Kenosha, WI.

Taking place on March 4th, 2018, with packet pick up and same day sign up starting at  11:00 a.m. and starting times will begin at noon.  Survival is Insufficient is an event that combines trail running/walking with orienteering. Everyone will be given a map of the course as they start, with individuals or families or couples leaving every minute.  Over the course of this 5K trail run/ walk, you will need to use your map skills to find the checkpoints, then punch your map with the designated punch, answer questions about Station Eleven for bonus points, and cross the finish line.   Once finished, you can enjoy food and beverages as you await other finishers. 

Orienteering involves navigating a map with a specific course with checkpoints along the way that must be verified to prove that you were actually there.  In orienteering terms, this is considered a short or sprint course.   This could be a perfect family event,  or for a Cub Scout pack, and anyone who enjoys running or walking with a little fun added!  

The Survival is Insufficient event is part of the NEA Big Read program.  The NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. More information about UW Parkside's participation in the NEA Big Read program can be found at


Station Eleven book will be available early 2018 for free at the UW-Parkside library and the Kenosha public libraries. Friendly competition is expected. Map skills will be helpful. Reading Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel is strongly encouraged (you get bonus points).


Once finished, you will be welcomed with great post-event food, soda, adult drinks, and fun awards. Registration is only $17 for students, $22 for adults,  couples $35 (spouses, parent/minor child, or partners in the same household) and families of 3 or more in same household $45.00. Same day registration available,  but advanced registration is strongly encouraged and helpful.  Large groups, please contact  for group pricing.


About Station Eleven: Station Eleven, Emily St. John Mandel's fourth novel, won the Arthur C. Clarke Award, was a finalist for the National Book Award and PEN/Faulkner Award, was an Amazon Best Book of the Month, and was named one of the best books of the year by more than a dozen publications. It's been translated into 27 languages. "Equal parts page-turner and poem" (Entertainment Weekly), the novel is set 20 years after a devastating flu pandemic destroys civilization as we know it. A woman moves between the settlements of the altered world with a small troupe of actors and musicians until they encounter a violent prophet who threatens the tiny band's existence. "Possibly the most captivating and thought-provoking post-apocalyptic novel you will ever read" (The Independent London). "Think of Cormac McCarthy seesawing with Joan Didion ... Magnetic" (Kirkus starred). "It's hard to imagine a novel more perfectly suited, in both form and content, to this literary moment" (The New Yorker). "I kept putting the book down, looking around me, and thinking, 'Everything is a miracle'" (National Public Radio)
