Who doesn’t love the sound of leaves crunching beneath your feet and the crispness of the air on an October day?
Wolf Pack Trail Run and Relay is the perfect way to enjoy all the sights and sounds of the fall season. NOTE: We have moved this event to October so it will (hopefully) be more fall and less winter!
Richard Bong State Recreation Area is the host for this fall ultra-event. Once designated to be a jet fighter base, the park is fittingly named after Major Richard I. Bong, a Poplar, WI native who was America’s leading air ace during World War II. The recreation area encompasses 4,515 acres of rolling grassland, savanna, wetlands, and scattered woodland. Nature is on display all around and is constantly changing with the seasons.
You can select between 4.5 miles (solo - run/walk/canicross), 9 miles (solo -- run/walk/canicross) 14.5 miles (solo or relay - run or walk), 29 miles (solo or relay - run or walk), 43.5 miles (solo or relay - run only) and 50 miles (solo -- run only). The figure "8" style course is uneven loops, with the small loop being roughly 4.5 miles and the larger loop being around 10 miles. We will be using the Horse Trails and Blue Trail for this event with the Blue Trail being one of the nicest trails, taking you through prairie and woodland, past wetlands, and around Wolf Lake. The uneven figure “8” style course is the perfect combination of distances enabling runners enabling runners/walkers of differing ability to partner as a relay. It also makes the entire event family/spectator friendly and well supported.
The 4.5mile, 14.5 miles, 29 mile, 43.5 mile, and 50-mile events (individual and relay) start at 7:45 a.m.
The 4.5 mile and 9.0-mile afternoon events (run/walk/canicross) start at 2:30 p.m.
The 43.5-mile event and 50-mile event requires a headlamp or knuckle lights, if you are walking the 29-mile event you will need a headlamp or knuckle lights as well. Flashlights will not be acceptable.
Richard Bong State Recreation Area is managed pheasant hunt area. None of the trails are closed due to hunting and the hunters are aware of our event. You may hear gunshots and encounter unleashed dogs during the morning and early afternoon, ending at 2:00 p.m. For this reason, we do not allow dogs in the morning start times.
