Race Information

1 loop of the course is about 4.3 miles long. Come and run just one loop or stay as long as you want! We will try to keep the bonfire going all day. There will be a prize for the fastest loop and most loops. There is potential for a backyard style race (1 loop every hour – on the hour). There will be various food and drinks throughout the day. Feel free to come out and bring a friend or just some food and libations.

Course Information

The DNR and old trail maps say this is a 5.1 mile loop. It is about ¼ mile away from the Crooked lake campground. In my experience, I have found it is closer to 4 miles. These are not groomed trails and have frequent hills, roots, sand, etc… Expect about 440 ft of elevation per loop (approximately 100ft per mile). We will run clockwise starting and finishing at the campground. See the Garmin Map for more details.


$5 (cover the cost of food and extra funds will be donated to the FGR XC team)


This is a group run. First time doing it. Do not expect this to be a well-organized event with chip timing and lots of swag. You’ll be lucky if you get anything. There’s hot food and cold drinks at the end. Maybe a prize for fastest loop and most loops.


We will have a couple of campgrounds reserved at Crooked lake campground. First come first serve to park there. Otherwise park alongside the road. Silver Hill Rd. About ¼ mile from the Start.
