The John Dick Memorial 50K is in remembrance of a former club member who was an all-around athlete, and enjoyed the trails in the Southern Kettle Moraine.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me; I look forward to welcoming you to the Southern Kettle Moraine this winter!

Description:  Primitive trail run (usually on the snowmobile trails in the area), with multiple loops or out-and-back segments; course layout will be determined by trail and weather conditions.  The course map linked above may be used, but is subject to change!  Participants should be experienced and accustomed to winter trail running, properly dressed and prepared.  If you DNF, please notify the aid station and finish line personnel.

Aid Station:  There will be a manned aid station at the start/finish shelter with a variety of food and fluids; drop bags can also be left here if you want to use one.  NOTE: We have moved towards being a cupless event; pre-filled paper cups will not be set out at the aid station.  Runners will be responsible for carrying their own container (bottle, vest, reusable cup, etc.) to refill along the way.  If you do not already have a reusable cup, we will provide you with one at check-in, courtesy of Hammer Nutrition!  Thanks for your help in reducing the trash generated by the race.

Dogs:  Dogs are not allowed inside shelters or at group picnic areas, per DNR regulations; please make other arrangements for your pets.

Perks:  Heated shelter at start and finish, with food and beverage for all entrants after the race (bring a treat to share if you want!).
