Mike Ariens - 10K | 5K

The inaugural Mike Ariens Run/Walk is a community event presented by AriensCo in Brillion, Wisconsin, to promote health, wellness and community in honor of the late Mike Ariens. The 10K run/walk features a route along the Mike Ariens “Run for Life” Trail, AriensCo conservation land, through downtown Brillion and the trail system at Ariens Nordic Center. The 5k and Kids Run both use Ariens Nordic Center trails exclusively. All ages and levels are welcome to enjoy the distance of their choosing: 10K, 5K or a Kids 1K Fun Run.

Several elements of the Mike Ariens Run/Walk are unique to further remember and honor Mike. Mike loved to run and always wore a bucket hat. He also loved ice cream! To this day, AriensCo employees remember Mike every year on his birthday with an ice cream treat. Every participant and volunteer will receive a Mike Ariens Run/Walk Bucket Hat and will enjoy an ice cream treat at the finish line celebration!

Race day is Saturday, Aug. 19, with an 8:00 a.m. start at Stone Prairie for the 10K, followed by the 5K start at 8:30 a.m. and the Kids Fun Run at 10 a.m. Both the 5K and Kids 1K Fun Run will start at Ariens Nordic Center. All races finish at Ariens Nordic Center where participants can enjoy ice cream and to receive their Mike Ariens Run/Walk medals. Awards for top finishers in each race in both men’s and women’s (as well as boys and girls) categories will also be presented!
