Race Day Instructions

The address above is correct. However, if you type in the address it may take you to Lapham Peak. Search using Nashotah Park, Nashotah, WI.

Have a need for one more 50K this year? We have it for you. In person, with real humans and a couple bucks and does.

Chose from a 5 pointer, 10 pointer, 13.1 pointer, 26.2 pointer or the 50 pointer! All distances include a bucking great finisher medal. See where this is going? You are going get a bunch of deer puns because it is right before WI deer season.

What's with the name?

The race is during deer season, and we wanted a deer related name so we held a naming contest. The Bucks & Does Fifty Pointer was selected, and now you know. You will very likely see deer during the run or in this case, hiding in the woods. 

Race Courses

The trails are well groomed and mostly wood chipped.  There is a portion that is grass, but it is well maintained. Over 60% of the course is shaded with trees.

The course distances will not be exact since it is trail running, and as nice as the park people are, they won't let us cut down trees to make new paths. If you have run at Nashotah with us in the past, it is the course in reverse (counter clockwise). Easier? Maybe, maybe not...

  • 5K - 1 lap inside - 3.21 miles
  • 10K - 2 laps inside - 6.42 miles
  • Half - 2 laps outside, one lap inside - 13.03 miles
  • Full - 4 laps outside, 2 laps inside - 26.06 miles
  • 50K - 5 laps outside, 2 laps inside - 30.97 miles

The outside laps are run first.

The course is market with 12X12 turn arrows, 3' tall course signs and cones. It does not use the traditional ultra trail tape or markings. It is very well marked and you do not need to try and memorize the course.

This is a Cupless race!

The idea of throwing 100,000+ cups in a landfill each year doesn’t seem in line with what most runners support. This has been in the works for 2+ years, but covid interrupted its implementation. Now is the time to do it!

Don’t worry, we’re NOT doing away with aid stations. There will still be aid stations with water and sports drinks at events, just no cups! You will need to bring a reusable cup with you. We are also expanding the areas for a bag drop where you can leave a nutrition/hydration bag.
