Run Away to the Bay

Run Away to the Bay
This 55-mile, 11-leg team relay race takes runners all the way from Menomonee Park in Oshkosh to downtown Green Bay. Run Away to the Bay was founded by Run Away Shoes store owner Ross McDowell after participating at the Fall 50 in Door County for several years. He realized there was nothing like it locally in the spring, and it would be a great way to get runner’s excited again after winter. This is quickly becoming a cant-miss event!

Thank you to all the 2015 Participants. The 2016 event date is TBD
