The Fab 4 Race Description

Start your 2019 off FABULOUS!

Nothing will help keep the glow of the holidays ongoing like running the trails.  The Fab 4 Trail running series will keep your cheeks rosy and keep the sparkle of the season in your eyes!

(Or you cheeks will be glowing due to the windchill and you will sparkle due to sweat.  We get easily confused)

The FAB 4 Trail Running Series includes.:

2 hr Choose Your Own Trail Adventure 3.5-mile CaniCross

This event is the first of two XCThrillogy’s Choose Your Own Trail Adventure. Choose Your Own Trail Adventure allows the participant to decide their distance for the event based on fitness, goals, and Mother Nature (and we ALL know how unkind she can be).  After you are done, enjoy beef stew, soup, hot chocolate, and Schnapps as you enjoy the company of your fellow trail enthusiasts.  Please BYO beverage or dessert to share!  Surprise swag, fun awards, and great company make the ending of your im Schnee festsitzen Choose Your Own Trail Adventure memorably.

Hills Are Alive Trail Run/Walk/CaniCross ~ Saturday, March 16th, 2019  Lake Geneva Canopy Tours Lake Geneva, WI

3.5 and 6.5-mile run/walk  9.5 and 13.5-mile run    3.5 and 6.5-mile CaniCross

10:15 a.m. start CaniCross  10:30 run/walk

New Location

Lake Geneva Canopy Tours/Arbor Trails is the new home of the Hills are Alive Trail Run and Walk. Every turn of this 3.25-mile trail loop will reveal new treasure. From the emerging wildflowers to surprising a deer or another critter, the beauty of this 100-acre property will spring clean your soul.

Dirty Dog Dare and Meraki Trail Adventure ~ Sunday,  April 7th, 2019  Richard Bong State Recreation Area,  Kansasville, WI

 4.5, 9.0, and 13.5-mile run    4.5 miles and 9.0-mile CaniCross   

10:00 a.m. start CaniCross  10:15 run/walk

Meraki is a Greek word which 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.


The Meraki Trail Run is 4.5, 9.0, or 13.5 miles of immersion in the experience of trail running in the spring. Bullfrogs and songbirds will be your soundtrack.  Muskrats, deer, forest, and wildflowers will be your backdrop. The new spring grass will give you the bounce in your step to complete your chosen distance (or perhaps more)!

Dirty Dog Dare is the CaniCross companion event to the Meraki Trail Run and is the final event of the 2018-19 CaniCross season. CaniCross athletes will have a choice of 3.5 or 7.0-mile events as a final test of their trail fitness.
