On Saturday, Silver Circle Sporting Events hosted its annual Flannel 5k and 10k race in Delafield, Wisconsin. The race wove through Naga-Waukee Park on the paved trails and along residential streets.
Both distances began promptly at 9 a.m. and racers were advised to be cautious because there were patches of ice on the course. Race staff and volunteers were stationed throughout and made sure that everyone’s safety came first.
The course was a 5k distance that the 10k-ers looped twice. It was a challenging, hilly course, and left all of the runners out of breath after the last double hill. The paved trails and streets were clear of debris and the scenery was a mix of nature and residential neighborhoods. Despite the tough inclines, the weather cooperated, holding steady around the 35 degree mark, a pleasant surprise for a February race in Wisconsin.
SCSE does a great job with pre-race communication, alerting racers to course changes and any challenges to be wary of. Prices for all SCSE events are lower than average and runners get a great experience every time. You can check out their event schedule here.
