Dirty Dog Dare
Bong State Recreation Area is the home of the Meraki Trail Adventure and Dirty Dog Dare for 2022! The 3.5 mile trail loop has some rolling hills, very scenic and is mostly double wide trails that traverse around Wolf Lake. Distances for this event; 3.5, 7, 10.5 or 14 miles. There also is a 14-mile 2-3 or 4 person relay option. The relay option could be the perfect solution for running partners with children to alternate running and watching the little ones! This event is part of the 2021-22 CaniCross as well.
Runners/Walkers/Hobblers you are welcome to enter the 3.5 or 7-mile events with or without a dog and 10.5 and 14-mile options are for runners only with or without a dog.
The CaniCross event will start at 10:20am and Run/Walk/Hobble Trail event will start at 10:30.
The weather forecast is calling for a beautiful early Spring Day! Be ready for some fun on and off the trails. We will have hot food, drinks and interesting social time once you are finished. You are invited to bring a treat to share.
Online signup will conclude at 10am on Friday, April 8th. Packet Pickup & Same Day Sign will start at 9:00am Saturday morning. You can also pick up your packet on Friday, from 11:30am - 5pm at Kenosha Running Company, 1706 - 22nd Ave., Kenosha, WI 53140.

the Red White & BluePROGRAM
Starting with our September 19th event... the Kenosha Running Company is humbled and thankful to announce that all military veterans, active duty serviceman, reserves, police, sheriffs and their spouses will be able to run/walk ALL of our events for FREE. The past few years we selected about 70% of events to be free, but I think it is about time that I stepped up with the support of all you and simply make them all without charge and with your collective thank you.
The past sixteen months have been especially tough for our law enforcement in Kenosha, surroundings area and throughout the country. The most recent deaths of thirteen young Marines in Kabul, only confirms this update in our Red White & Blue Program is warranted. Those that have supported our Military program in the past... a huge thank you. Those that have served us locally and internationally I am humbled and thankful for your service.
If you qualify, please email us or call (262) 925-0300 to receive a discount code for the FREE entry. Please note, you will have to show proper identification at packet pick up. Please consider a donation to support this program so it will be maintainable and sustainable for many years to come. Donations may be made online with your race registration to the Red, White & Blue Program or simply mail your check (made out to Kenosha Running Company) to KRC, P.O. Box 126, Kenosha, WI 53141.
