The Caveman Run 5k is full of challenging and fun obstacles located at one of the most historical
parks in Wisconsin, Maribel County Park. The park offers caves, a playground, a picnic area, and hiking and biking trails. A picnic shelter with bathrooms is located in the picnic area. The beauty of the area made it a popular tourist destination as it also has real caves.

This is a family event which features 1/2 mile obstacle course for kids which parents can run with their child to support them. You will love the obstacles and photo op with Willy the Woolly Mammoth. Enjoy a feast of paleolithic and regular plain ol' food.
