The race starts and finishes at the Nordic Trailhead
All three loops begin and end at the trailhead.
GPS Race Address:
N9084 Co Rd H, Whitewater, WI 53190
There's ample parking available at the Nordic 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.
