About This Event
Join us for the best party race of the season! This five-mile event, held at the luxurious four-diamond Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, is the perfect weekend getaway for you and your running pals!
5 mile out and back on country roads and around the resort. Same as prior year with start line near the finish line, which is right outside the Forum room. No more long walk to the start line after packet pickup, its right outside the door. An out and back route on resort property and town roads. Start just outside the Forum Room (start line and finish line are next to each other this year). Begin by running the paved path on lake side of lodge the full length of the buildings, take a left just past Building 7 through the parking lot and then a right on the road down the hill, at bottom of hill turn left, continue past the airport buildings and off resort property turning right onto Sheridan Springs Road. Take a slight right onto Back Road, continue until you reach the turnaround. Return the way you came, remembering when reaching the top of the hill there is about a half mile to go. At top of hill turn left through the parking lot and onto the paved path next to the lake side of the lodge where you follow it to the finish.
It all started on a balmy winter day in 1980 at the Playboy Club in beautiful Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Over 1,000 runners showed up for our first-time event. The late John Jantz fired the starter’s pistol, and Playboy bunnies, in uniform, gave out the trophies! Since then the run has added many additional run and party features. Join us for the 41st running of the best darn race and party in the Midwest!
The race begins and ends at the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, just East of the intersection of Hwy 50 and Hwy 12 on the East side of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. After the long driveway, you will see the Forum Convention Center building and parking lot. There is additional parking beyond the main entrance. Both the registration packet pickup and post-race party are at the Forum Banquet Room at the Building 1 end of resort.
Bib numbers may be picked up on race day starting at 12:30 PM at the Forum room.
