Event Date: 
July 18, 2020 - CANCELLED

Race Status - Cancelled

We are sad to announce that the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Adrenaline Races.  This was a very difficult decision given this event is our primary fundraiser each year.  That said,we felt that the health and safety of our participants, staff and volunteers, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, was our primary responsibility.  

Registered participants may choose one of three options:

1. Donate their registration fee to Elevate to provide services to individuals and families experiencing challenges with substance use and mental health disorders
2. Defer their registration to next year
3. Request a refund no later than July 2nd. Refunds will be processed the week of July 10th and sent to runners.

If you would like to defer to next year, you do not need to do anything. We will automatically defer the race for you. If you would like a refund or donate the registration fee to Elevate, please see the race website and select the appropriate option.

The Eisenbahn Trail, built on a former railroad corridor, is a 25-mile trail extending from the historic city of West Bend into the scenic countryside of eastern Wisconsin past the glacial landscape of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. Eisenbahn is German for railroad
