Hello Runners!

Race week is upon us! Hopefully the training has gone well and you’re all ready to enjoy the best autumn marathon in the state of Wisconsin! Our participation numbers are much higher than last year, and we are looking forward to welcoming all of you to Luck, WI for a wonderful day. Here are some notes to make your race experience more enjoyable:

Odds and Ends:

Online registration closes on Wednesday October 7th at Noon. If you have friends and family that are on the fence about signing up, please tell them to do so. It’s much more fun to spectate after you’ve run the 5k (walkers are welcome). There is race day registration but there is a price hike after online registration closes so encourage your support crew to save $10 by clicking here and signing up now!

7 Rooms are still available at the Luck Country Inn. If you’re looking for lodging close to the event start, this is a great choice. (715) 472-2000

Early start will be at 7:00 AM, report to the starting line prior to 7 and we will record your bib number at that time.

If you wish to switch to a different distance race please pick up your assigned number at the race for which you are currently registered and request the change at the registration table. You will run with your preassigned bib number, and we will record the change. There is no fee for changing to a shorter race. A $15 fee will be asked of participants wishing to switch to a longer race.

Expo and Bib/Race Shirt Pick-up:

The Luck Fire Station will be open on Friday, October 9th from 4-8PM for registration, bib pick-up, and an expo. The Fire station is located on State HWY 48 and West Street. We don’t anticipate you will have any problem finding the fire station as Luck is a very small town.

Fire Station Address:

115 West Street

Luck WI 54853

Race Day Registration:
