The run is on a closed 5K course starting in downtown Oconomowoc at Fiesta Cancun. Runners will run north past Fowler lake along Oakwood Ave until the turn around point. At the turn runners will head south on Roosevelt Ave through Oconomowoc neighborhoods hoods until reaching Fowler Lake Park. At the park, runners will enter into the Fiesta Cancun Queso Corner where they must down a burrito before returning the to course for a 1 mile "sprint" to the finish. No worries...the burrito isn't the normal massive Fiesta Cancun size. We have downsized it for the race.Course outline
Post race party
Why run if you can't enjoy the fruits of your labor? Running is hard and everyone deserves a party at the end. At Silver Circle Sports Events we do it a little different. Our post race party starts when we open the gates and stops when we turn off the lights. There will be music/bands, food and beverages. Come for the race and stay for Oconomowoc's Fall Festival.
Everyone likes to wear a costume. Whether you run in your favorite super hero costume, your best burrito outfit or impersonate your favorite local politician, dress to impress! Costumes are not required but there will be an award for best costume and besides when your girlfriend beats your time, you can blame it on the costume.
Runners will be assigned to waves based on registration date. Waves will be between 100 & 200 people and will leave every 5-10 minutes based on course conditions. We are having runners leave in waves to keep the burrito station clear for runners.
Want to run with your friends, co-workers or the in-laws? No problem. Putting together a team is easy and free. Just find 3+ people, pick a team name and register.
Water and IXL Sports Hydration drink will be available on course.

Well you should. Training is hard, time consuming and lasts way too long. Racing should be fun and as such we don't take ourselves too seriously. Our events are based on runners having fun on the course and after the run. We design events that we want to do because like you we are runners. All of our events are focused on the safety of the athlete and ensuring our guest has an enjoyable event.
