Welcome to the 8th annual Indian Lake Trail Run, featuring a 7k, 12k, and 1k Kids' Fun Run. 100 percent trail!

The event is limited to 400 runners. Early entry is encouraged as we anticipate closing out. There will be no race-day registration. The Kids' Fun Run is free and there is no need to pre-register.

Register online or by mail starting June 3rd. 

All proceeds from the race will go to restoring Indian Lake's fishery and the park's prairie and savanna. Race funds also support trail maintenance and Dane county's efforts to build a new shelter.

Restoration Work Day at Pheasant Branch Conservancy

9:00am - 12:00pm

Help the prairies to flourish! The Pheasant Branch prairies are relatively young, and the work we do gives a competitive advantage to the natives we’re working to establish.  Come for all or part of the time. No experience needed. Dress for the prairie; closed-toe shoes, long pants, a hat and work gloves (if you have some favorites).

Regular workdays are 9:00am to noon on the third Saturday of each month

Meet at the parking lot in the Dane County Part of Pheasant Branch Conservancy, 4864 Pheasant Branch Road - 1.2 miles north of Century Avenue. (This parking lot is just after the large Dane County Parks sign.)

We hope you can join us in the Conservancy!
