Saturday, June 3 | Kettle Moraine State Forest
The Ice Age Trail is calling your name, and we are thrilled to host our first MammothMarch edition in Wisconsin! Hike 20 miles in 8 hours or 30 miles in 12 hours along one of only 11 National Scenic Trails in the country.
Located less than an hour north of Milwaukee, we will call the Northern Kettle Moraine State Forest home for one day. Our single-circuit 20- & 30-mile hiking loops cover everything the 30,000 acres of rolling hills, lakes, and forests have to offer.
Mastering our challenge, you will be exhausted, but proud and happy... as well as part of our amazing community of nature-lovers, hikers and MammothMarch addicts!

There is no timekeeping, there are no failures, we only recognize the incredible courage it takes to rise to our challenge. Every participant completing the distance will be awarded with their finisher medal and considered a winner!
Starting time: Several starting slots available from 6:30 a.m (30-milers) and 7 am (20-milers). You can choose from specific time slots with limited capacity when signing up. This ensures the most remote hiking experience as a maximum of 5 participants cross the starting line at the same time. The majority will come back in just about 8 hours (20-miles) or 12 hours (30-miles). However, we will have our finish line open for the ones that need a bit more time.

The final routes will be made available around 2 weeks prior to the event.
Total elevation gain: Around 1,000 ft. (20-miler), around 1,400 ft. (30-miler)
