About This Activity

Welcome to Peshtigo’s 28th annual Fire Tower Run. This is a 10K run leaving Peshtigo’s city limits, following the contour of the Peshtigo River. Then a nice run through the woods to go where the Peshtigo Fire Tower once stood. Upon rounding this secluded spot, a quick jaunt through the woods will take you back on course to the city of Peshtigo. Finishing in Bulldog Stadium.

If your not quite ready for the 10K run, we also offer a 5K run or a 5K walk. This course takes you through the back streets of Peshtigo’s lovely Badger Park. Finishing in Bulldog Stadium.


All children 9 years old and younger will receive a completion award when crossing the finish line.

For both the 5K and 10K run; awards will be given to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd finishers overall for both the men and women. Also 1st place will be awarded for the top finishers in each age divisions.

For the 5K walk; awards will be given to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd finishers overall for both men and women. There will be no awards for divisions. Divisions will be based on age for both male and female in each event.
