All proceeds benefit children with special needs at Zachariah's Acres, a 501(c)(3) organization located in the town of Oconomowoc, WI.
Zachariah’s Acres is a universally designed campus where kids and young adults with special needs and their families can be themselves & experience the beauty of the outdoors.
This last year, over 4,000 guests have been served through free family events, school field trips, community partnerships (Easter Seals, YMCA at Pabst Farms…), Garden Basket CSA Program, and more.
For more information & to get involved, visit zachariahsacres.org.
There is no prerace course review. Zachariah's Acres is not open to the public. Please do not visit the facility before the event.
The 5K & half marathon courses are set on Zacharia's Acres 125 beautiful acres consisting of tree-lined paths, wild flowers, prairie grass, ponds, wild life, crops, evergreens, Fall colors, and more.
The family walk/roll loop is 1 mile of gentle hills and scenic views. Jogging strollers or all terrain wheel-chairs are recommended.
This is a wave start. Waves are comprised of 10 runners. We will have 10 rows of 10 cones, spaced 10’ apart. You can self-select which wave you would like to run in by standing next to a cone facing the start line. We suggest faster runners in the first few rows and request you do not self-select your wave until 10 minutes before the start of the race.
The announcer will release one wave every 30 seconds starting at 9:00am Your time will not start until you cross the mat. We encourage each wave of runners to self-distance as they approach the start mats.
Based on our current permits, face coverings are now required at events. Here is how it works:
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.
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.
After the race purchase apples or pumpkins from the ZA farm cart or enjoy a cup of coffee and/or baked goods donated our community partners.
Zachariah's Acres is a private facility NOT open to the public. Please do not preview the course prior to race day. The facility is open to the public ONLY on race day.

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.
There will be an on-course bag drop area for you to leave your nutrition and hydration items. It is located on the northeast side of the building where the path passes the building. Please place your bag in the designated bag drop area before the race and space it 10’ from other bags. Both sides of the course can be used. This is a self-placement and self-serve bag drop. We will not be transporting bags on course. Don’t worry, there is plenty of time and space for you to self-place your bag.
For every three registrations, we will refund $10.00 of your registration fee. Two ways to do it.
