Released Oct 1: View The Possible New Course for 2018
Possible New Course: Video and Data (Other course data to be provided later) captured on Sept 30 2017
The distance shown in the video is quite accurate, and with that said it can be seen that it will be necessary to add a little bit more distance to get a full 10 miles. Something will be added to the begining such that we will not cause any issues for runners.

Minor Warning: this video is medium file size (approx 150MB at 320p).

Major Warning: this video is warped in time by 1/4x to speed up your viewing pleasure. Obviously, do not drive around Black Earth at the rate of the video. Though, it can be fun to watch.

NOTE: As mentioned, the route shown is a route being considered and is not yet confirmed. Provide us your feedback. Keep in mind the traffic at 10AM on Saturday will be much less than you see in the videos. We need to be conscious of safety (something started end of Sept 2017), and we are looking at all the angles before we can make anything official. We will inform participants which routes have been confirmed and not confirmed before registrations opens.

Information about the 2017 route follows...
The route is very simple...
The course starts at Black Earth Elementary School and runs down Center street and then turns east on to highway KP, and then turn around and come back to where you started. The course is flat paved road with a scenic view of the valley and hills nearby between Black Earth and Cross Plains, occasional strong winds, simple one-turn one-zig-zag out-and-back, water at certain miles (TBD); accurate with every mile marked.

Availability
The course is open for 3 hours. This translates to an 18 minute mile. After 2.5 hours, the event will be taking things down, but leave important things such as the school and water available until the end of the 3rd hour

Technical
Thanks to Tom Aten, the course is a USATF certified 10 mile WI-11004-DM. Every mile is accurately marked. Water stop locations indicate the approximate position of the water stops.

Water Stops
As a result of weather typically not being hot, water is typically not in high demand. However, especially in the event that the weather is warm, we are providing water at approximately miles 3.25,5+,6.75,and 8.5. These are not all 100% assisted. If you have a special need for water (being assited where it isn't as such) or something like a sports drink at one of the stops, please contact us. See course maps below for more insight.
