Race Day Instructions | Check your start time


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.

If a race is sold out, shoot us and email and we may be able to move some caps around.

What's with the name?

The race is one week before 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. 

Virtual Option!

Not ready to run in person or don't happen to be near Wisconsin? We have a virtual option!

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 ran the Lapham Peak race (at Nashotah) last September, it is the course in reverse. Easier? Maybe, maybe not...

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

The outside laps are run first.

Inside course loop map | Outside course loop map 

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 will be a wave start race. Waves of 10 people will start every 30 seconds. There will be 10 rows of cones with 10 cones per row spaced 10 feet apart. You will self assign your wave on race day by selecting the wave and standing next to a cone. The announcer will start each wave. We ask that people social distance at least 10 feet while in the park and wait until 10 minutes prior to the start of the race to select your wave. Your time will not start until you cross the start line. As you make your way from the wave to the start, please continue to social distance by 10 feet.

Face Coverings

Based on our current permits, face coverings are now required at events. Here is how it will work:

Anyone in the “Arena” is required to wear a face covering. The Arena is defined as anywhere other than on the race course. This includes registration, packet pickup, parking areas, finish line, start line, restrooms, beer line, medal line, anywhere near other people. If you are within 10’ of anyone, at any time, a face covering is required.

Once you are on course, face coverings do not need to be worn, provided you are at least 10 feet from another person. At the start, you are spaced 10’ from others - we strongly encourage you to keep that distance. If you need to pass, call out “on your left” and move as far left as you can. Once you have passed a runner and you are at least 10’ in front of them, move back to the right.

We encourage runners to consider using running buffs while running near others. Buffs are available on our merchandise website.

When you cross the finish line, please move outside of the arena for your cool down. Once your cool down is complete, a face covering is again required.

If we want to keep running in person events together (and we do!), it is imperative that we exceed our permit requirements. Waukesha County is one of the few places in America that is open to in person events. It is up to our running community to prove that we can hold events safely.

Park map


The shirts are deer and doe specific, dry wick and those registered by noon on November 1 are guaranteed a custom race shirt. After that, shirts will be available while online supplies last. Any extra shirts will be distributed after the race on a first come, first served basis. 

Everything you ever wanted to know about shirts can be found right here. The FEMALE shirts run small!


Parking is available on site.  

The entrance to the park is short, so please have $5.00 in cash or a season pass when entering. There are four park and ride lots in the area.

Bag Drop

Runners will need to drop their bags prior to the race start in order to keep the event 100% touch-free. Coolers & chairs are permitted and both sides of the path can be used. Please keep all items spaced 10" apart. You can also have your crew support you east or south of the parking lot.

Aid Stations

Sorry, because we cannot guarantee touch-free aid stations, there will not be any. Please take advantage of bag drop options for your hydration and nutrition needs.

We will have snacks, water & Gatorade at packet pickup before the race and will bag it for you.




We need volunteers for everything from goody bag stuffing to course marshals. If you or your group have an interest in volunteering, we would greatly appreciate the assistance. All volunteers can run a future race at no charge. Register to volunteer by clicking on the volunteer link in the menu above.


The event is chip timed by Silver Circle Sports Events. Please wear your bib on the front of your body and only cross the finish line when you are finished. We will have a lap counter mat on course.  How to wear your bib.
