The half-marathon race will start and end at Torphy Park, downtown Minocqua. The finish is just past the final trailhead at Torpy Park, Minocqua. Racers will head out around Lake Minocqua to Dr. Pink where it intersects with the Bearskin Trail. The runners will take a right on the trail and head south just past Jacobi’s at Cedar Falls Road where they will turn around and head back to the finish just shy of Torpy Park. The Bearskin is a crushed gravel surface following a route with few elevation changes. Laid over an abandoned railway, the Bearskin Trail takes the runner along woodlands, past marshes, lakes, and streams, and over several old abandoned wooden railway trestles. It is truly one of nature’s most beautiful trails.
The 5k Run/walk is an out and back on the Bearskin Trail. The runners start just south of Torpy Park by the Oakfire Pizza Parking lot and finish in the same location.
The Cubby Run starts and ends in the same location as the other 2 runs. The cubbies will do an approximately 1K run, out and back.
