Wisconsin Trail Runs is an all volunteer organization that puts on two trail runs in beautiful south central Wisconsin, one in June at Blue Mound State Park and one in October at the Black Hawk Unit of the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway.  Proceeds go to the Friends of Blue Mound State Park, Groundswell Conservancy, and the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway Fund.


Hello Friends & Runners

The snow has (mostly) melted off of the trails at Blue Mound State Park and this gets us in the mood to run in the woods. This year's Blue Mound Trail Run will be Saturday, June 4th.  So, get your legs loose and your mind clear to fly down the trail.  Come out and see the great spring flowers on May training runs.  Look for registration to open in early April.

Looking ahead to fall, mark your calendar for another edition of the Black Hawk Ridge Trail Run on Sunday, October 23rd.  Details for Black Hawk will be filled in this summer, and registration will open mid-August.

Meanwhile, make the rounds to the other Savanna Series events for more running and funning.


Run, Eat, Repeat.

Savanna Trail Run Series

Participate in at least four of the six area trail races from May to November and be part of our natural and trail running heritage. You'll traverse woods, hills, and prairies across the county at Donald and Indian Lake county parks, Blue Mound and New Glarus Woods state parks, Pheasant Branch Conservancy, and Black Hawk Ridge above the Wisconsin River. The landscape of southern Wisconsin was oak savanna, and restoration projects are going on in all our Savanna Series parks.  Check out the details here. 


100k / 250k Club

Run a total of 100K on our trail runs--Blue Mound and Black Hawk Ridge--to join the 100K Club and get your orange hat.  Keep running and when you reach 250K you get a gold hat with your name embroidered on the back!
