Eight Miler added for 2019
Runners start across from Lac la Belle and head north on the isthmus between Fowler Lake and Lac la Belle.  Turning west into the Village of Lac la Belle, the course hugs the lake before heading into the country side.  The course returns to the Village of Lac la Belle again hugging the western side of the lake.  Once runners reach Wisconsin Ave, it is a fast and flat sprint to the finish at City Beach on the lake.
