Mountain Goat Hill Race

Mountain Goat Hill Race

CANCELLED – SEE YOU IN 2021

Kickapoo State Recreation Area
The 34th Annual Mountain Goat hill race is CANCELLED. In light of COVID-19, we are following the best practices of social distancing provided by public health officials. (We know, we know. This club is tough. You know that if you’ve ever eaten chicken wings right after a sweaty high five at the Howl or shared gold fish you carried in your pocket during the HASH.) But, we need to follow the guidelines set for us to mitigate the spread of illness.
The KRR board members pondered over this decision for a few months and had to finally make the hard decision in early summer. You can still run those hills and get ready for 2021…coming back better than ever! The board continuing to monitor public health organizations, and we will post updates to our Facebook page and website as soon as we have information.
Again, the Mountain Goat is CANCELLED but we will see you in 2021. Thank you for understanding.
