Wisconsin > Mauston Pumpkin Bash Half Marathon
Mauston, WI



Saturday, October 24, 2009

Event Details

Part of a weekend-long series of events at the Mauston Pumpkin Bash fall festival in this small southern Wisconsin town, the running events include a half marathon, a 5K run/walk and a "Spooky Sprint" run for kids age 12 and under. All of the races in the event start and finish at a new location at Veterans Park near the 4H building, and the 13.1-mile half marathon takes runners southward across the Lemonweir River and into the forested areas around the river.

The terrain for the race is made up mostly of paved surfaces, and includes some stretches of trail run along natural surfaces through the woods near the Lemonweir River. It's through these stretches that the course offers its most beautiful scenery, as the river is among the area's most popular spots for both warm-weather and cold-weather recreation, from fishing, canoeing, camping and horseback riding to cross-country skiing in the winter.

Race Weather & Climate

Located in the southern half of the state, about 75 miles northwest of Madison, the town of Mauston typically sees moderately cool to cold weather conditions in the mid-fall season, with drier weather than the summer months. In October, average monthly temperatures range between 60°F and 36°F, while rainfall totals average around 2.3 inches for the month.


2008 fees:
$30 for the half-marathon
$25 for the 5K run/walk
