General Information

Covid-19 Update
State Park facilities are currently closed through April 30th, but we have not canceled or postponed the race at this time.  We will review the situation again on April 30th, or sooner if the WI DNR has an update before then.

The Bunk House Trail Runs offer 50K, 30K, and 10K distances for runners of all abilities.  This event is dedicated to the legacy of Tom and Loraine Bunk, who have been a cornerstone of the trail running community in Wisconsin for a long time.  Construction of a year-round shelter building at the Scuppernong trailhead was started in June of 2017, with all proceeds from this event donated to the shelter project ($17,499 to date); future proceeds will be used to complete the shelter, and other projects in the SKM state forest.  SHELTER PHOTOS

On-line registration will be open February 1st thru May 21st; race-day registration will be available on-site.

Cups / Fluids
We have moved towards being a cupless event; pre-filled paper cups will not be set out at the aid stations.  Runners will be responsible for carrying their own container (bottle, vest, reusable cup, etc.) to refill along the way.  If you do not already have a reusable cup, we will provide you with one at check-in, courtesy of Hammer Nutrition!  Thanks for your help in reducing the trash generated by the race.

Check-in begins at 6am on race day.  State Park parking stickers are required, and will be available to purchase if you do not have one; cash and check (payable to WI DNR) only:
