We made the difficult decision to postpone the Caveman Adventure Run 5K from October 3rd to May 15th, 2022. Due to the number of local COVID cases and hospitalizations increasing and uncertainty how quickly the number of cases will grow, we decided that it would be safest to postpone the event to spring.

We were determined not to delay the event another year. While this is a disappointing message to deliver, we thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to planning a bigger and better Caveman Run in May of 2022!

The Caveman Run 5k is full of challenging and fun obstacles located at one of Wisconsin's historical
parks, Cherney Maribel Caves County Park. The park offers caves, a playground, a picnic area, and hiking and biking trails. A new shelter was built in 2020 with water filling station and bathrooms 
at the south end of the park. The beauty of the area makes it a popular tourist destination!

This is a family friendly event which features 1/2 mile obstacle course for kids. Parents can run with their child to support them. Rinse off after the run and enjoy a feast of paleolithic and regular plain ol' food.
