What our runners are saying about this event!

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.

The 2024 ONE MOTHER OF A RUN was a RECORD-BREAKING YEAR!   We welcomed more runners, walkers and kids than ever before.  It was an incredible success for all!

The 2024 event offered an 11-mile run, a 5k run/walk and our $5 Kids Fun Run!   The Kids Fun Run features local mascot “Susie the Duck” and brought smiles and laughs to all.

This event truly had something for everyone and our community came out to celebrate and cheer you on!  

The rural and scenic beauty of our course can be enjoyed as a casual 5k walk with friends, neighbors, and family.

We have our highly competitive 5k all out sprint.

A course to put yourself to the challenge and claim yourself as a true ONE MOTHER of a RUNner  - those runners took on our grueling, challenging, INCREDIBLY rewarding 11-mile event with?    Yep, have that too! 

Over the past 14 years, we have welcomed our community and participants from far and wide to this amazing event in Lodi WI!  

Every year, we continue to receive an overwhelming positive response from our participants – they LOVE our event, and they LOVE our community!   Positive comments regarding our course cheer groups, the level of organization and overall fun are abundant.
