What a fantastic community!  Loved every second of the race and every inch of the (horribly steep) hills.  Thank you for the wonderful race, the organization was superb and the support was the BEST!!!  Hope I can run this again in the future.

Such an awesome event with unbelievable support from the community.  There were people cheering with signs and costumes at every intersection.  The whole town came out to participate or watch.  Sam G.

Lodi is home of Susie the Duck, who makes a home on our Spring Creek running through the heart of Lodi.  Come visit this historic small town nestled in the countryside of rolling hills, beautiful pastures and ice age trails.

Lodi and the surrounding townships have much to offer the traveler whether you are driving through, spending a day, or staying a week. We are lucky to be on Lake Wisconsin, near the famous Merrimac Ferry and Devil's Lake. Our community is rural in nature, but rich in heritage.
