The First Call is part of the Wisconsin Chilly Willy Run Series & presented by Fleet Feet Brookfield.


The course starts at the EB Shurts Environmental Education Center.  After a short distance, runners will enter the Glacial Drumlin Trail for an out and back course. The trail is wide and paved with very little elevation change.  From mile 2.6 until the turn around there is a slight, gradual grade increase.  Make the turn and it's all downhill from there.
This is a fast out and back with no street crossings or other things to slow you down!.  A super fast out and back perfect for an early year PR.
