We want to hold an in-person road race in December in Wisconsin. While all of the details aren’t finalized yet, we are committed to organizing a safe race over the frozen tundra that follows all relevant guidelines and also ignites everyone’s inner yeti. Guidelines change. In the end, to a large extent, our success depends on every runner who participates:

  • Stay home if you’re sick
  • Be considerate of others
  • Maintain appropriate social distancing
  • Have fun
