About This Activity

This our third annual “Lace Up” 5K Cross Country Run and 1 mile Family Fun Walk that raises money to bring hope to orphans & foster care children.

This race is one of the few competitive 5K cross country runs in the area.  It starts off on the soccer field at Lake Country Lutheran High School & works its way across the street into a beautiful wooded trail with the finish line back on the Lake Country Lutheran's grounds.  Our event is one week after the end of all college & high school cross country seasons, so encourage all your student friends to join you for this race & see if they can beat their best time!  This is a timed race & during the post-race celebration awards will be given for the top runners by gender & age groups.

If not interested in running, you can also do a delayed start after the runners & walk the same 5K course or take a 1 Mile Family Fun Walk around the pond on the grounds of Lake Country Lutheran. 

Post-race join us indoors in the Great Hall at the school for a post-race Celebration complete with (more than typical) food, drinks, music, kids’ activities, raffle, adoption & foster care information, race results & awards.

Event details and schedule

The 5K run will start promptly at 10am.  Please note there is a short walk from the indoor registration out to the starting line, so please plan your arrival time accordingly.  Following the 5K runners start, the 5K Walkers will start immediately after & then the family fun walk will follow at approximately 10:10am due to having a different race route.

Early Packet Pick-up will be on Friday, Nov 7th from 3-7pm at Fleet Feet Sports in Brookfield (17550 B-1 W Bluemound Rd, Brookfield, WI 53045) OR you may arrive as soon as 8am on race day at Lake Country Lutheran High School if you would like to pick-up your race materials, walk the course, etc.  Please come into the school through the Great Hall entrance off the largest parking lot for registration, restrooms, etc.

Plenty of parking will be available in Lake Country Lutheran High School's Parking Lot.

Even though this race is in November (due to local high school cross country teams donating their timing equipment to us for free, so more fundraising dollars can go directly towards our cause), we have always lucked out with great weather.  Hopefully with a few extra layers you will be comfortable & have a great time race day!

Please note that because this is a cross country course, strollers are not recommended due to course terrain.
