Race Update | Race Day Instructions

The race is sold out. Join the waiting list and when a spot comes available, you will receive an email. The half marathon can be run virtually.

The race will happen this year, but will not be at Pike Lake. The state has not started to issue permits, but Waukesha County is. Yep, another chance to run Killer Hill! The race will also be capped to ensure we exceed Waukesha County guidelines.

Virtual Option

Not ready for an in person race? We get it and now offer a virtual option. Download the RaceJoy app and run the race on race day. Your results will be automatically uploaded! Your shirt and medal will be mailed to the address you used during registration after the race.

Finisher Medals

All half marathon finishers receive a custom finisher medal.

Tshirts

The shirts are gender specific, dry wick and those registered noon July 29 are guaranteed a custom race shirt.  After that, shirts be available while on line supplies last. Any extra shirts will be distributed after the race on a first come first serve basis. 

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

Race Courses

This will be a wave start race. Waves of 10 people will start every minute. 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 the cone. The announcer will start each wave. We ask that people social distance at least 6 feet while in the park and wait until 10 minutes prior 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 socially distanced by 10 feet.

Once finished, please clear the race area so we can bring in the second race. 

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.

Aid Stations

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

When you select your start cone, you can leave a drop bag with nutrition and hydration. That cone will be your aid station throughout the race. Coolers are permitted.

Volunteers Needed

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.

Spectators

Spectators are NOT permitted at the start/finish or anywhere in picnic area 5. Our permit does not allow for spectators in those areas.
