    Yellow Brick Road SOCIALLY DISTANCED 5K Run/Walk

    The Oconomowoc Area Chamber of Commerce along with our Presenting Sponsor, Waukesha State Bank and Kids' Fun Run Sponsor, Roger's Memorial Hospital invite you to join us on Saturday, October 3 for the Yellow Brick Road 5K Run/Walk.  This will be a beautiful fall run that starts and ends at the Village Green Park overlooking Fowler Lake.  Runners follow the isthmus between Fowler Lake & Lake Lac La Belle before entering a neighborhood for a short jaunt before returning to the Village Green, where you will receive your custom collector’s finisher medal as you cross the line.  Our Refreshment Sponsors, Associated State Bank and Subway – Brown Street, will have booths near the finish line and will handout bottled water and snacks – choose from a variety of individually wrapped sweet or salty snacks (remember to social distance please).

    Your safety is our priority – our very experienced race organizer, Silver Circle Sports Events, has designed and implemented safety protocols to keep racers socially distanced before, during, and after racing.  The race start will be marked with cones that are spaced 6 feet apart and waves of 10 people will start every 30 seconds.

    Yellow Brick Road Kids Fun Run Virtual Race

    Because of the set up and space needed for our COVID-19 safety protocols, we are unable to offer an in-person race for kids.  We know kids love our Fun Run and are proud to receive a medal for their accomplishments, so we are offering a virtual Kids Fun Run this year.  Just register your child, have them run between September 26 and October 4, snap a photo of them crossing a finish line (be creative with your finish line!), and email it to the Oconomowoc Area Chamber of Commerce.  Your child will be awarded a free finisher medal courtesy of our Yellow Brick Road Kids Fun Run sponsor, Rogers Behavioral Health – the medal can be picked up at the Oconomowoc Chamber of Commerce office or pay shipping charges and we will send it to you.  

    Give us permission and we would be happy to share your child’s accomplishment on our Yellow Brick Run 5K Facebook page (we will use first names only).  Just email a completed photo release with your photo.  Click here for a copy of the release.

    Registration for the Kids Fun Run virtual race is limited to 75.  If you have already registered your child for the June race which was postponed, the registration has automatically been moved to the virtual race – medals will be available for pick up at the Oconomowoc Area Chamber of Commerce located at 175 E. Wisconsin Avenue from October 5 – 9 (call ahead and let us know you are coming) or to have them shipped, please visit https://business.oconomowoc.org/events/details/yellow-brick-road-5k-shipping-for-kids-fun-run-medal-1275.  

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.
