Wisconsin Trail Runs is an all volunteer organization that puts on two trail runs in beautiful south central Wisconsin, one in June at Blue Mound State Park and one in the fall at Black Hawk Ridge.  Proceeds go to the Friends of Blue Mound State Park, the Lower Wisconsin Riverway and The Natural Heritage Land Trust.

Hello Trail Runners.   This year the long race will be close to 20K and take you to the top of the mound twice. We ran this route a few years ago, it starts by circling counter clockwise halfway around the mound and coming up the trail to the west tower, then down through the campground.  The 10K will only go up top once but will take in the lovely section on weeping rocks trail coming up from Pleasure Valley.  We are looking forward to seeing all of you old friends and new on June 3rd.
Happy Trails to you. 

We have reached our limit. Registration is closed. If you would like to be a part of this event we still need some volunteers. Contact Willi.

Garlic Mustard Allert     

Garlic mustard is an invasive plant that is just getting established in Blue Mound State Park. We need your help to kick it out! Join the Friends of Blue Mound State Park at our Garlic Mustard Control Workdays and come ready to pull, pull, pull! It will be a great chance to listen to the birds and learn some wildflowers too. Dress in sturdy boots, long pant, light work gloves if you prefer, and bring water and a snack. We’ll meet in front of the Friends Shelter at the north end of the pool parking lot.

Garlic Mustard Workday Schedule:
May 20th, 1pm
June 10th, 11am

Savanna Trail Run Series

Participate in at least four of the five Dane County trail races from May to November and be part of our natural and trail running heritage. You'll traverse woods, hills, and prairies across the county at Donald, Indian Lake, and McCarthy county parks, Blue Mound state park, and Blackhawk Ridge above the Wisconsin River. The landscape of southern Wisconsin was oak savanna, and restoration projects are going on in all our Savanna Series parks.  Check out the details here.

100K Club

We try to keep track of all the kilometers that runners have completed in our Blue Mound and Black Hawk trail runs through the years.  When you hit 100K you get acknowledgement and a 100K hat and when you hit 250 you get a 250K hat with your name embroidered on it.  (Please let us know if you think there is an error.)

              100k     100K club new members
Last fall's  new 100K Club members proudly wear their hats.

How close are you? Check your progress toward the 100K Club here.
You're getting close if you made this list.
