About This Activity

Welcome to the 3rd annual McCarthy Park Trail Run ! 

The McCarthy Park Trail Run offers an 18K and 9K trail races and a free 1K kids race.  Our event is the 4th race in the WI Trail Run Savannah Series (see link below).

Proceeds will benefit “The Friends of McCarthy Park” who support many projects throughout the park each year.   The proceeds from the run help fund winter activities in the park.  With the past race proceeds we have helped with the cost of grooming the ski trails, the sledding hill and snow plowing.

Both the 9K and 18K trail runs will follow the same route and will provide a fun and challenging course.  McCarthy Park is a Dane County Conservation Park with prairie, woods and wetlands.   The run will take you on trails throughout all areas of the park with hills, prairie and a short section of gravel road.  Join us for post-race lunch and awards.

Awards: Both Races Overall M/F winners, Age Group M/F top three <14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65+
