Race Information

Obstacles will be safe for children of all ages (no barbed wire, fire, or electric shocks here!). We will also rotate in new obstacles along with some of your favorites for each race.  Parents, talk with your children about which obstacles they feel comfortable going through – they can always go around an obstacle and take the “clean track” if they don’t want to get wet/muddy.

The 2015 Fall Course maps are posted below.  For more details, please see the obstacle descriptions here.  We will post our medium course shortly!

An optional pre-race packet pick-up will be held at Madison Smile Solutions – 5602 Odana Road, Madison, 53711 from 4:30-6:30pm on Friday, September 25th. You may also pick up your packet, t-shirt, and goody bag on race morning beginning at 7am.

Complimentary food for our athletes is available due to our generous sponsors.  This consists of fruit from Fresh Madison Market, bottled water, and CLIF Kid bars.

If you need to change a wave, you will need to do so online (available until online registration closes), at either early packet pick-up on Friday evening, or on race morning at our Wave Changes table.


All participants will receive finisher medals.  This race will not be timed, so there will not be any awards for top finishers.  The goal of this race is to encourage fun and fitness, so if your child would like to be timed, please have them wear a stopwatch.

Finally, we have one traveling trophy that will be awarded to the school with the most participants.  This will be a traveling trophy presented at your school after the race, and you can display it proudly until the next Tri 4 Schools event!
