Milwaukee 5K

The Great Milwaukee Turkey Day Run / Walk starts at the Boerner Botanical Gardens. The starting line is in the middle of the gardens and follows Whitnall Park Dr though Whitnall Park.  Runners make a turn before the Whitnall Park Golf course and then head back to the Boerner Botanical Gardens for a grand finish.  This road course has winding curves and minor rolling hills.  Great for a late year PR or a casual walk.

Oconomowoc 5K or 10K

Oconomowoc Community Center

220 W. Wisconsin Avenue
Oconomowoc, WI 53066

We moved the start line to the Oconomowoc Community Center parking lot so we can use the building for packet pickup, awards and FREE hot chocolate bar.

This might be the flatest course in Wisconsin.  The course starts at Oconomowoc Community Center for a super fast out and back along the Lake Country Trail (paved). At the turn, the elevation is a whopping 20 feet higher than the start. Make the turn and it's all "downhill" from there.
