Description

Lake Country Challenge - A New Tradition Starts Today!


Runners start across from Lac la Belle and head north on the isthmus between Fowler Lake and Lac la Belle.  Turning west into the Village of Lac la Belle, the course hugs the lake before heading into the country side.  The course returns to the Village of Lac la Belle again hugging the western side of the lake.  Once runners reach Wisconsin Ave, it is a fast and flat sprint to the finish at City Beach on the lake.

Hey Runners!


The National Weather Service is forecasting some very hot weather for tomorrow’s race. When deciding to hold our races because of heat and humidity, we follow the Road Runner’s Club of America guidelines. While the current forecast is within those guidelines, it is only a forecast, and we all know how “accurate” those can be. Because we are near the limits, we are converting the half marathon to the 8-mile course so we don’t have to cancel the half in the middle of it and pull people off course.


The half marathon has a 5-mile section of wide-open asphalt road with “rolling” hills. By rolling, I mean pretty significant hills. We are removing that portion of the course.


The 8-mile course is tree lined for the vast majority of the course providing much need shade for tomorrow. It also hugs the shoreline of Lac La Belle, which should help keep temperatures cooler.


The three aid stations will have water, Gatorade and ice.


You do not need to do anything with your registration. It has already been moved to the eight mile and the QR code above reflects it.


See you tomorrow!
