  • Muck-Suck


This event, named after a Potawatomi Chief, is a 20ish mile running event on the shore path around Geneva Lake.

Did You Know? Before being renamed Lake Geneva, the city used to be named “Muck-Suck” as well!



Well, do it and you’ll find out! Just kidding – we’ll give you as much info as we can here. Muck-Suck is a 20-ish mile adventure run on the shore path of Lake Geneva. We say 20-ish because there isn’t an exact measurement and this isn’t a race for you if you’re looking to qualify, place first or take yourself too seriously. It’s crazy, it’s fun, it’s an adventure! The course is beautiful and it’s a great time to get a group of friends together and spend a weekend in Lake Geneva!

A little bit about the course. It’s not all lovely, paved Shorepath that will be easy to run on. There are rocks, roots, grass, brick and hills. Nothing about the course is constant, but that’s what makes it an adventure. One thing is for sure - your miles will fly by.

Run the course as a solo runner or a relay team up to four. Gather your friends, family, co-workers – whoever is adventurous enough to do this with you! If you choose to tackle solo, you can ignore this. Relay people, listen up!

Each runner will run one leg, ranging from 4-7 miles, depending on which leg you take. Each leg is different and has its own advantages and challenges. We’ll give you as much info as we can about each leg so you can assign runners as you wish (check out the “course” page on the website). Only one runner is on the course at a time.

At each exchange point, you will tag out and hand your wristband to the next runner and they’re off! Once you’ve completed your leg, hop in the car with your teammates and head to the next exchange point to cheer your runner on. Make noise, be loud, heck, wear a costume! Make sure your team stands out and knows you’re waiting for them at each exchange point.

The Muck-Suck 20-ish is right for you if you and your friends are up for a good time with a heck of a party afterwards. You can choose how competitive you’d like to be. We suggest you not taking it too seriously. This course is about the beauty. Take in the views, be careful on your path and enjoy the Muck-Suck 20ish!
