The 25th annual John Dick Memorial 50 kilometer run will be held on Saturday, February 2nd, 2013. The start and finish are located at the D.J. Mackie Group picnic area on Hwy ZZ in the Southern Kettle Moraine unit. This event is a primitive winter trail run; participants should be experienced and accustomed to winter trail running, properly dressed and prepared (I also recommend microspikes like these or installing screws in your shoes in case there is ice like last year.)
The course is five 10K loops, so you can run as many loops as you want! And for only $10 (pre-registered) or $15 (day of race), it's a great and cheap mid-winter training run.
More details can be found here.
Also, here's the Striders map and directions and a Google map.
If you want to carpool, meet at the State Fair Park and Ride at 6am and we'll figure how many cars to take based on what distance everyone is running.
