There's ample parking available at the McMiller trailhead We do ask that you please carpool with your friends if possible to save space. After turning into the park, our race area and the trailhead can be found by taking your first left.
The event is held inside the Kettle Moraine State Forest. Therefore, all vehicles entering the park must either have an annual WI State Park sticker visible on the front windshield, or, you may purchase a discounted day pass for $5 while registering. Please note, if you're carpooling with your team, only one pass would be required. You may also purchase an annual pass before hand on the WI DNR Website.
We will race rain or shine. Bad weather is irrelevant if you're dressed properly. Please make sure you are prepared for the day. Throughout the series, you'll encounter cold temperatures, hot days, rain, wind and all the other variables Mother Nature loves to throw at you!
Trail shoes are highly recommended for these races. With the exception of Oleson Cabin and Blue Springs, the trails are not highly technical. Although, that's not to say won't find rocks, roots and other hazards on course. We also recommend some sort of handheld hydration system be it a full pack or single handheld bottle. We DO NOT have cups at our aid stations so please come prepared to fill your bottle.

We're so lucky to have a bounty of beautiful trail networks in our backyard. Mammoth is committed to keeping these trails clean and accessible for future use. We understand the impact events have on trail systems, the parks and the communities around them and take extra measure to ensure the impact from any of our events are minimal. Below are some things you can expect to find at the event.
Recycling Cans. Please make sure things like gels and other nutrition wrappers make their way into the recycle bins.
Cupless Event. All our events are cup-less. This means we will not have paper cups at any aid station or water fill up stations. Each runner is responsible to bring his or her own reusable cup and reusable /hydration bottle.
Carpooling. We recommend carpooling with friends or with your team on race day. Not only does it save in gas and emissions, but also makes the day more fun and enjoyable. Traveling with friends is always better than traveling alone.
