Timed Race

The WaunaFest Run 10Mile and 5K are chip timed events. The 2Mile Walk and Kiddie Run are not timed. The ChampionChip Timing system is used to ensure accurate timing. You must attach the timing chip to the top of your shoelace. The timing mats will NOT READ your chip and your results will NOT be recorded if not properly worn. Your time will be posted online the day of the event. Timing chips must be picked up at registration along with your bib number. Please recycle your timing chips in the provided bins at the end of the race.

Race Start and End

Due to construction, the race will start near the Waunakee Village Park, by the Waunakee Village Center. The race ends in the scenic Waunakee Village Park. Maps of the race routes - 10M, 5k and 2Mile walk/run, will soon be available at www.waunafestrun.org.

 Early Packet Pick-Up and On-Site Race Registration

Pre-registered participants may pick up their bib number and timing chip at the Village Center on Friday July 25 from 2 pm-7 pm. On-Site registration will also be available on Friday/Saturday. The Village Center is adjacent to Village Park.

Kiddie Run

Children 8 and under can lace up their running shoes and line up behind the Village Center for the Kiddie Run event! Kids will be grouped into waves and distances based on age. Kids will run 800 yards (or less) around the baseball field and finish at the WaunaFest Run finish line, where Scoopie gives Hi-5's! ** Registration is limited to the first 250 kids who register online by July 21. Goodie bags are at Packet Pickup ONLY from 2-7pm on Friday, July 25th! 9:30am 8 year old waves will start on July 26th.
