Series rules 







As part of our effort to increase awareness of run local / buy local, we have created the Chilly Willy Running Team Challenge.  The goal is to increase awareness of local running managers (hey that’s us), local running stores (hey that’s where you shop) and local running teams (hey that’s all of us) in a fun and competitive format. 

Grab three of your friends and create a team. Hey it's free and you can create the team during registration.

How it works

The Mother Nature Factor

Occasionally the event distance will not be exact because roads end, highways get in the way, cattle stampede and it snows in Wisconsin. We do our best to ensure all events are exact distances exact but occasionally mother nature happens.
