Yellow Brick Road Kids Fun Run

June 3 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am

The Oconomowoc Area Chamber of Commerce along with their Presenting Sponsor, Waukesha State Bank and Kids’ Fun Run Sponsor, Roger’s Memorial Hospital invite you to join in for the Yellow Brick Road 5K Run/Walk and Kids’ Fun Run. They welcome runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. The race will be managed by Oconomowoc’s awesome race organizer, Silver Circle Sports Event, LLC. Enjoy our chip-timed event on a closed course through beautiful Oconomowoc.

First organized in 2006, this family friendly event has grown to be one of the most popular events of its kind in the Lake Country area attracting hundreds of participants of all ages each year. Why do they hold a race with a Wizard of Oz theme?  It is because the world premier of the Wizard of Oz was held at Oconomowoc’s Strand Theater on August 12, 1939!

The course starts downtown at the Village Green Park overlooking Fowler Lake. Runners follow the isthmus between Fowler Lake & Lake Lac La Belle before entering a neighborhood for a quick lap before returning to the Village Green.

Children 10 & under participating in the 1/2 mile Kids’ Fun Run receive a finisher’s medal – 1st boy and girl to cross the finish line will receive a trophy. Sorry, no shirts.

The Kids’ Fun Run starts at 8:00 a.m., followed by the main race at 8:15 a.m.

***The Yellow Brick Road 5K Run/Walk & Kids Fun Run will be having a price increase on April 30th. Hurry and register before 11:59 on April 29th to beat the price increase!***
