Calling all runners, walkers, and cow enthusiasts! The Wisconsin Track Club cordially invites YOU to come join the herd for a MOOvelous morning full of fitness and fun! Bring your friends, family, and anybody you can COWnt on to be at the event! After the stampede has finished, feel free to graze on complimentary post-race snacks and drink some milk (or water, if you prefer). Register by 5/20/17 to guarantee a Custom MOOvin' 5K Glass Milk Jug! Prizes will be awarded to the top male and female finishers!
Some proceeds will go to subsidizing travel expenses for members of the Wisconsin Track Club so that they can afford to compete in local meets as well as NIRCA (National Intercollegiate Running Club Association) National and Regional meets. Additionally, proceeds will be donated to Achieving Collaborative Treatment, an organization providing therapy for and promoting physical activity for children with autism spectrum disorders (www.actreatment.com)
NEW THIS YEAR: The Wisconsin Track Club also hosts several meets over the course of the summer called the Summer Track Series. With moving the MOOvin' 5K into June, it was placed right before the start of these meets. Because of this, we are offering a deal for those who would like to do both of these events! If you register for the MOOvin' 5K, when registering for the Summer Track Series, you get ONE MEET FREE (note: this will be taken into account during registration for the Summer Track Series, not during registration for the MOOvin' 5K)! So moove on over and sign up for this udderly insane deal!

2017 brings you a brand new course design! Start in the grassy University Bay fields before heading up into the Shorewood Hills subdivision, where you'll experience a bit of rolling terrain. At the 1-mile marker, take advantage of a nice downhill as you cruise down onto the flat and fast paved bike path towards Picnic Point Lakeshore Nature Reserve. There, you'll join up with the scenic Howard Temin Lakeshore Path. Take in the sights of U-Bay on Lake Mendota until you near the UW Marching Band Practice Field, then turn towards home! Make your final surge to the finish on another flat and fast stretch of the bike path. The finish chute turns off into the University Bay fields, right next to where you started. Check out the route on MapMyRun, or see below for a detailed, interactive look!
