You have asked for a miler for a long time and here it is! Super flat and fast. No turns, no road crossings, nothing stopping a PR!

How It Works

This is a chip timed, one mile, all out run!  In this version, you run three one mile races for a 5K (3 miles actually) and we score your overall time using age grading! Each race will start every 15 minutes. Hey, it sure beats shopping!

What is age grading percentage? It is a way to score a race and create an even playing field regardless of age. If you look at most of our results, you will see an age percentage column. 

Please note the address listed is for the fire department adjacent to Chapman Park.

Aid Station

Because we cannot guarantee a touch-free aid station, there are no aid stations on the course or at the finish line. You should bring your own water.


Parking is available on surrounding streets. Please do not block the fire department for obvious reasons.

Social Distancing

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 before selecting a 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.
