About the Race
The River to Ridge 5 Mile route is engulfed in nature’s beauty! This challenging trek starts at the Mississippi River in Riverside Park, winds through the La Crosse River Marsh trails, and leads to a lush, green view of the Mississippi River Valley from Hixon Forest’s bluff top.

Flush toilets are available at Riverside Park before the race, porta potties are available on the bluff-top. A bag drop will be available at Riverside.

Dogs are not allowed on the race course or on the shuttle bus back to the park.  Service animals welcome.
