Alcohol and drug addiction are growing problems in our
Communities. Help us battle addiction by enjoying our beautiful 5k, 10k run/walk or 1 mile walk(non competitive) courses through Menominee Park. All benefits from the event go to local treatment and prevention programs. Proceeds will support organizations focusing on substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery:  
  • Nova Counseling Services
  • Solutions Recovery, Inc. 
  • Winnebago County Drug and Alcohol Coalition
  • Winnebago County D.A.R.E

The Course

The course starts and ends at the Solutions Recovery Center.  There are plenty of beautiful views along the way as you travel through the stunning Menominee Park along Lake Winnebago, and passed the Menominee Zoo! 

The  10k course course is the perfect distance if you are training for a marathon.  The new course will be a big loop. There is no extra cost and you can run or walk it. Please choose either the 10k, 5k or 1 mile walk option when you are registering.

Water station is located approximately halfway through the 10k course and another one half way for the 5k.*It is a flat course and USAT certified*


Many of us have family, friends or neighbors lost to the perils of addiction. You may want to remember them through creating a team contributing to a heartfelt cause or you may simply want to create a team for loyalty and unity in your workplace or friends.

1. Team Captains can register the team members all together or each
      member of a team can register themselves on

2. You need to choose a name for your team.
3. We can customize the your shirt with your team name and design.
4. It is only $12 per color no matter how many shirts you do.
