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.

Driving directions via Google Maps can be found here, or check out the map below.

From the Beltline, take the Verona Rd. exit and take 18-151 south.  Take exit 81 for Verona, heading west on Verona Avenue until you see Culver’s on your right.  Turn left onto Lincoln Street, and the park is just past the fire station on your left.



You can park in the small lot at City Hall, at Eagles Nest ice rink.  There will be street parking available, but please be aware of No Parking signs in certain locations as marked by Verona Police.

Early Packet Pick-up

We offer an optional Friday evening packet pick-up from 4:30-6:30pm on 9/21.  This will be held at Madison Smile Solutions – 5602 Odana Rd, Madison, WI 53719.

Complimentary food for our athletes is available due to our generous sponsors.

Clif Bar donates Clif Kid Protein and Z Bars – please check nutritional info on their site, as many products do contain nuts or other allergens.

We have bottled water donated by our friends at Premium Waters.

We will also have oranges and bananas

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.

Please do not bring dogs to the race – this is a potential safety issue for both the pet and our participants.  The City of Verona also does not allow dogs on site.

No strollers are allowed on the course itself.


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!
