Adrenaline Races

Sat July 18, 2020 West Bend, WI US 53095 Directions
Adrenaline Race Cancelled for 2020

We are sad to announce that the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Adrenaline Races.  This was a very difficult decision given this event is our primary fundraiser each year.  That said,we felt that the health and safety of our participants, staff and volunteers, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, was our primary responsibility.  

Registered participants may choose one of three options:

  • Donate their registration fee to Elevate to provide services to individuals and families experiencing challenges with substance use and mental health disorders
  • Defer their registration to next year
  • Request a refund no later than July 2nd. Refunds will be processed the week of July 10th and sent to runners.

If you would like to defer to next year, you do not need to do anything. We will automatically defer the race for you.

Here Are Your Options:

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

FAQ

Should I stop to smell the flowers on the trail?

If you do, please be careful!! There are poisonous plants, such as poison ivy, along the trail. We encourage you to follow the course and stay on the trail!

What about bugs?

Bugs also like to smell flowers.  Please remember your bug spray!

Will there be police at busy intersections?

There may be police at some of the intersections however, runners should NOT expect law enforcement to stop traffic and course volunteers are not authorized to stop traffic. The majority of the course is on the trail however, when the trail crosses roads or when participants are off the trail the roads are OPEN and the rules of the road prevail. Volunteers and law enforcement will assist you when possible but it is your responsibility to ensure your safety particularly when crossing roads or not on the trail. 

Can I have someone run with me as a Pacer?

Sorry, only registered participants are eligible to run on the course during the event.

Will there be mile markers and turn around point markers?

Yes, the mile and turn around point markers will be located on the course. Additionally, volunteers with signage will be located at the turn around points.
