Click image to view photos

One of downtown Madison's many fantastic runs. If you like, catch some dirt at the Mound Trails which splinter off our main route after mile 3. If you have wheels, you may want to start your run at the Arboretum/Lake Wingra, the perimeter loop is a 10K

* Our mileage starts/finishes behind the Hilton Monona Terrace Hotel on the Lake Monona path

* Head South and veer Right on the paved path as it forks (you'll be running away from Lake Monona)

* Turn L along Washington Ave and L again along Shore Drive

* Depart from the path and turn R onto Erin St, then a quick L on Mills which will bring you to the Arboretum Drive entrance

* Run around Lake Wingra's perimeter returning to the entrance along Vilas Park Dr

* Head back the way you came

Total = approx. 10 miles (shorter routes possible)
