2013 info - Wednesday  September 18th at Prairie Springs Park on Lake Andrea in Pleasant Prairie.  The kids race is at 6:00 pm and the adult 5k run/walk is at 6:30 pm.

Background:
Held on Wednesday evening in mid September, the first race started at seven in the evening and was held the evening of the Harvest Moon. Because darkness was a problem, the race start time was moved to 6:30 p.m. Also because of this issue the race date has moved from the exact harvest moon, which can be well into October, to mid-September. The race has grown from about fifty entrants at its first running to over 220 entrants in 2009.

The course has always been around Lake Andrea in Prairie Springs Park and has been a 5K. The course includes a little less than a mile of a wooded section of the park. It is a flat, fast and accurately measured 5K.

This event, like all our races, welcomes both elite athletes and recreational runners, and for many is a family event. In this spirit, there is a free one quarter mile race for children twelve and under.

The 5K race has five year age divisions starting at nine and under and going to seventy plus years of age. Both races award division medals to the top three finishers and trophies to the overall winners.
