Tip Of The Day

Avoid Skipping Recovery

Listening to your body is key to avoiding injury and burnout. Your body can actually grow stronger when you are at rest. The process of training includes workouts that are strategically placed along with rest days, which provides stimulation during the activity and recovery when you are at rest. If you are new to running, it is important not to push yourself to hard. Injuries can pop up when training advances too quickly. If your body is giving you warning signs, listen and take the extra time off so you can fully adjust and recover to meet your specific fitness needs.

Dirty Dog Dare

There are many answers to why our participants participate in our events, but they all can agree on the fact, when they are running/walking the trails, they are doing so with passion, devotion, and undivided attention. Dirty Dog Dare is the CaniCross companion event to the Meraki Trail Run and is the final event of the 2019-20 CaniCross season. CaniCross athletes will have a choice of 4.5 or 9.0 mile events as a final test of their trail fitness. If you are new to CaniCross, please note that this event is beginner-friendly and special CaniCross equipment is not required. If you are interested in trying CaniCross equipment or upgrading your current set up, visit our boutique at 1706 22nd Ave Kenosha where we will happily fit your dog (and you) and you can test run the equipment on our property or the adjoining bike trail. Ran in conjunction with the Meraki Trail Run is 4.5, 9.0, or 13.5 miles of immersion in the experience of trail running in the spring. This event is perfect for all fitness levels and is dog-friendly for those not interested in participating in the CaniCross Event. Bullfrogs and songbirds will be your soundtrack. Muskrats, deer, forest, and wildflowers will be your backdrop. The new spring grass will give you the bounce in your step to complete your chosen distance (or perhaps more)! PLEASE NOTE: Richard Bong State Recreation Area is part of the Wisconsin State Park system and there is a vehicle admission fee. This fee supports the staffing and maintenance of the parks throughout the state of Wisconsin. This admission fee is not part of your race entry fee and will need to be paid to enter the park. Daily pass rates for vehicles with Wisconsin plates is $8.00. The fee for out of state plates is $15.00. XCThrillogy is offering RUNSURANCE on this event. If for any reason you are unable to attend the Meraki Trail Adventure, you can defer your entry to next year's event, run a similarly priced event, or get 80% of your entry fee refunded. Select RUNSURANCE as an option during registration if you are interested.
