2018 Finisher Medal










New for 2018 - the start line is Downtown on the Village Green.  The course takes runners east along the new Fowler Lake boardwalk and then right down Wisconsin Avenue through the Christmas lights. At Church Street, runners head south under the train trestle, past Roosevelt Park then on onto the Lake Country Trail (paved) for a super fast and flat 5K run or walk.  The finish line is across from City Beach.
