5k Course

Minocqua Torpy Park Course: The 5k race will begin and end at Torpy Park – downtown Minocqua. All participants will follow the Bearskin Trail to a halfway point. They will then turn around and follow the Bearskin Trail back to Torpy Park. There will be water stations located along the course. This course takes place mostly on crushed gravel, crosses two  bridges over the Minocqua Chain of Lakes.


We need many volunteers to have a fun and successful race. Visit the Volunteer at the 5k page to view the race volunteer opportunities. Some volunteer opportunities are NOT during the run and can be achieved before or after running the 5k.

Race Etiquette

To help facilitate a positive race experience for all runners and walkers, we ask that you practice standard 5k etiquette:

  • Please do not push or rush to the starting line once the gun goes off.
  • Should you need to walk, please move to the far right of the trail and try to ease your pace into a walk instead of abruptly stopping.
  • Allow runners to pass on the left.
  • If you see a runner who needs medical attention, please alert a Course Marshal, Caped Crusader or Bike Patrol.
  • Do not wear another runners bib. It is mandatory for runners to register for the race so each participants signs our waiver.
  • No dogs may accompany runners/walkers in the 5k.
  • No bicycles are allowed on the race course (except for designated bike marshals).
  • iPods and other personal music players are also highly discouraged. Running music- free helps to make the race safer and allows you to really take in the atmosphere of the race!
