Welcome to the Wisconsin Trail Assail
Seven races over seven months with a series ending championship. The races are held in Waukesha County and Wisconsin State Parks. All the races have 5K, 10K & half marathon distances. NEW for the 2022 Season...the last race will have a marathon distance! The Wisconsin Trail Assail is walker friendly!

This registration is for the series. When registering, select the distance you would like to run at all the races. Don't worry you can change your distance anytime for free -- this includes changing your distance to the new marathon distance at the last race.

THIS IS A CUPLESS RACE!
The Wisconsin Trail Assail Series is a cupless series!

The idea of throwing 100,000+ cups in a landfill each year doesn’t seem in line with what most runners support. This has been in the works for 2+ years, but covid interrupted its implementation. Now is the time to do it!

Don’t worry, we’re NOT doing away with aid stations. There will still be aid stations with water and sports drinks at events, just no cups! You will need to bring a reusable cup with you. We are also expanding the areas for a bag drop where you can leave a nutrition/hydration bag.

WALKER FRIENDLY COURSES
While the Wisconsin Trail Assail Series course can be technical and challenging, they are also very walker friendly! Walker are welcome to join any race and any distance! 

THE SILVER CIRCLE SPORTS GUARANTEE
Not sure about a trail run? Come out and try it. If you are not satisfied with our trail events, we will refund the entrance fee! No strings attached.

KIDDOS RUN FOR FREE
Kids can run the FREE Kiddo's 1K if a parent is running. They will get a bib and finisher medal, but they must be registered in order to run. Shirts are available for purchase during registration.

FREE FRESH FRUIT BAR
Check out our free, fresh fruit, finish line aid station.  Sure beats stale bagels and green bananas...

SERIES SCORING AND POINTS

TEAM CHALLENGE
Here is how it works.

As part of our effort to increase awareness of run local / buy local, we have created the WTA Running Team Challenge. The goal is to increase awareness of local running companies, local running stores, and local running teams in a fun and competitive format. 

Want to join the team challenge? Well it is super-duper easy and free. We only ask that you help promote the WTA Run Series and awareness of run local / buy local.

Not on a team yet? Consider #TeamSCSE! It is free and open to all abilities. Plus you will instantly get a couple hundred new running partners.

AGE GROUP AND HALF FINISHER MEDALS
Overall Awards For Each Race
Overall Male & Female runners for each distance will receive a custom award provided by our partner Ridgeway Woodworks. 

Age Group Awards For Each Race
Top 3 male & female finishers in 5 year age groups will receive a custom medal. Age groups are 0-14, then every 5 years.

Finisher Medals
1/2 Marathon Distance finishers will receive a custom finisher medal. Marathon Distance Finishers at the last race will also receive a custom finisher medal.

Miss your medal? There are three options to obtain medals:

1. Pick them up at our office the Tuesday following the race. The medals are located in a black box in front of our office entrance 24/7.
