50M/50K/26.2 Support Drive Instructions

  • Be on high watch for runners crossing the roads as they do bolt from the trails!
  • Roads are displayed on the runner’s course map, but the runner may want to hold onto that.
  • Pick up the Brown County State park map at entrance gate for more detailed road map.
  • The wooden bridge at Northgate entrance has height and weight limits (if you're over height, use the West Gate).
  • The campground portion of Brown County Park is not open to race vehicle traffic. Volunteers will take care of the runners passing through this area. Ultra/Marathon Aid stations are located within this area but not accessible to Ultra support.
