The event begins in front of the Barlow Planetarium on the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley campus in Menasha and ends at Riverside Park in Neenah. The 13.1 mile route features mostly flat terrain with only one bridge overpass at mile two. All participants receive a custom printed shirt and a medal to commemorate their race participation and finish. We’d love to see you there. In the meantime, we encourage you to join our Daily Mile Group, read our training tips and use the training schedules to ensure you’re ready for big day.

Nutrition

Understanding nutrition and eating right is one of the most important aspects of running or working out. Knowing what and what not to eat can dramatically affect your performance. If you’re expecting your body to perform, and perform well, you’ll need to dedicate some time to understanding and thinking about what you put into your body. We’ve found some helpful nutrition tips here for you.

Gear

One of the best parts about running and walking is the equipment required. All you really need is a good, supportive pair of shoes that fit your body type and running style. However, finding that perfect shoe can be a challenging task. It is most certainly worth the time, energy and money to ensure you get a pair of shoes that fit well and reduce the risk of injury. It’s not a bad idea to consult a professional to help you find a running shoe that’ll keep you happy and injury free. Get your gear >>
