ABOUT THE RUN
The Warriors 5K ...through the park is designed to be a unique opportunity for high school, college and running enthusiasts in Southeastern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois. This race offers the competitive feel of a cross country race in late fall. Walkers are also encouraged to register for this event and enjoy a 2.25 mile walk through beautiful Greenfield Park. The Warrior 5K serves as a fundraiser and community outreach for the Wisconsin Lutheran College cross country teams.
AWARDS & INCENTIVES
The top overall male and female runners as well as the top two teams in each division, will be presented with awards. This event is team-focused. Runners are encouraged to register as a team. Points will be assigned to each runner based on their overall finish (i.e., 1st place receives one point, 2nd place two points, etc.). Teams with the lowest number of combined points in each division will be the winners.
ABOUT GREENFIELD PARK
The Greenfield Park cross country course is a familiar course for many local runners. The course begins on the southwest corner of the park with a gradual incline toward the north. The course then winds back toward the start line on trails through a small line of trees. It continues along the service road, where the first mile is at the back end of the parking lot. The course continues through the woods on rolling trails with mile two at a fork in the path. The final 1.2 miles is a near replica of the first, featuring plenty of open space for movement. Overall, the course is rolling with occasional rough footing in the woods, but a picturesque course nonetheless, especially in the fall. It was the site of the 2000 Wisconsin State Private College Championship, as well as the 2000 & 2005 Lake Michigan Conference Championship meet.
