Run Wild celebrates 35 years

For 35 years, you’ve been able to support the work of the Friends of Potawatomi State Park by logging just a few miles on a fall Saturday. The annual Run Wild Quarter Marathon/5K and Smokey Bear Fun Run is scheduled to take place again on October 7th at Potawatomi State Park. While the run has seen its participant counts decrease in recent years due to an increase in the number of races available in Door County, the event still expects to welcome approximately 400 runners and walkers to its trails. Pat Saladin has been one of the race directors of the Run Wild for 20 years after first volunteering on the Run Wild committee in 1996. He is proud of the lasting legacy of the event and the projects it has helped support over the years.

While you still have just under a month to train, there are still some deadlines for you to consider. The price of the race is $30, but it will increase to $35 on September 18th. You also have until October 2nd to register online at this link, otherwise you will have to sign up at either the packet-pickup event at Bay Shore Outfitters on October 6th or at the park itself on October 7th. You can find more details about the race, including what you will receive for participating, by clicking this link.
