About The Kringle Rush
The Kringle Rush Half Marathon in Burlington, Wisconsin is sure to be an unforgettable experience for any avid runner. The route takes you through scenic trails and past stunning views of Lake Michigan, providing a unique and enjoyable running experience.
The course starts off with a few loops through the city streets before heading out into the countryside where it follows along the Great River Road – one of Wisconsin’s most popular routes. Runners will be surrounded by gorgeous rolling hills, farms, and forests as they make their way along this 13-mile path. With its gently sloping hills, runners are sure to have plenty of motivation to keep them pushing forward towards their finish line goal!
The weather on race day can range from mild temperatures in the 50s or 60s (Fahrenheit) during early morning runs to hot summer days with temperatures reaching up to 80 degrees Fahrenheit closer to noon time. It is always wise for runners to plan accordingly and dress appropriately for each season’s temperature changes throughout the half marathon.
Runners can expect great support from spectators that come out for this event every year; many local businesses get involved as well by offering discounts and promotions on race day items like energy gels or water bottles which makes it easier than ever for participants! There are also several food vendors that set up shop near the finish line so runners can refuel after finishing their run successfully!
One thing that sets this half marathon apart from other races is its special “Kringle Rush Challenge” – if you complete all three legs of this challenge within 3 hours or less then you’ll receive an exclusive medal at your post-race celebration party! This challenge includes completing two laps around downtown Burlington followed by a 9-mile jaunt across country roads leading up toward Lake Michigan – what better way could there be to test your endurance?
Overall, those who participate in Kringle Rush Half Marathon will find themselves immersed in stunning scenery while being surrounded by supportive locals cheering them on throughout their journey towards victory.
