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

Thanks to the runners, volunteers, cheerers, sponsors, and weather gods who made the 2021 Black Hawk Ridge Trail Run a great fall run and fun event.  The Black Hawk run is a fundraiser for Groundswell Conservancy.

Next up will be the 2022 Blue Mound Trail Run, hosted by the Friends of Blue Mound State Park.  Details will be posted by March.

Hope to see you on the trails.

The Trail Crew


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!
