This 5k, 10k and Half Marathon event takes place at the Vines and Rushes Winery and utilizes the beautiful Mascoutin Trail. Our race was originally created as a partnership between the community and Ripon College. Now in its 16th year the class continues. Ripon College Professor Dr. Hatcher teaches a class on motivation with the option of training and completing a half marathon. The event has grown over the years to bring together Noon Kiwanis, Ripon Rotary, Ripon Medical Center, Ripon College and other community members. Now in its 5th year on the Mascoutin Trail we have found a winning event.
Due to the Covid-19 health crisis, the in-person race has been postponed until 2021; with runners offered the chance to participate in a virtual race for 2020.
