2019 Fall Colors Run with Fontana Sports Specialties and the Lodi Valley Chapter

October 12, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Enjoy the natural beauty of Wisconsin Fall Colors on the scenic Ice Age Trail!

Join Fontana Sports Specialties and the Lodi Valley Chapter of the Ice Age Trail Alliance for a great morning on the Gibraltar Rock Segment of the Ice Age Trail.

No, we will not be throwing any color powder on you…this is just a good old fashioned trail run on a beautiful (but challenging) segment of the Ice Age Trail. You will enjoy amazing views of Lake Wisconsin and Devil’s Lake from the top of the bluffs and finish in the valley right next to the Merrimac Ferry Landing.




Three distances available so no matter your age or ability we’ve got an event for you:

  • 2 Mile Family Fun Run/Walk
  • 4 Mile Run/Walk
  • 8 Mile Run

This is not a timed event. There will be a clock at the start/finish if you’d like to track your time.
