Sun Prairie Running Community

Sun Prairie is such an active community and there are so many opportunities for runners to train in town.  We are so blessed to have so many community parks and trails for cycling and running.  So many of the paths connect across town, making it easy to piece together a long run. 

Some of my favorite running locations in Sun Prairie include:
·       -  Orfan Park
·       -  Sheehan Park
·       -  Carriage Hills Estates Park
·       -  Wyndham Hills Park
·       -  Stoneridge Estates Park

Attend the Strawberry Festival Run events at the Colonial Club on June 17.  Strawberry Festival offers both 5K and 10K options and a kids race.  The event will also offer fresh strawberries and desserts and Strawberry Land for the kids. There is also a vendor and craft show on site.

Register for the Book’n It Run events at Sheehan Park on August 5.  The family-friendly event offers both 5K and 10K events, as well as a one mile run and kids fun run with local mascots.  This community event also gives away several prizes to participants and funds raised benefit the Sun Prairie Public Library.

If female runners are looking for a little structure or motivation, women and mothers can join a running group with Running Diva Mom.  Runners will rotate several different parks and trails in Sun Prairie as they train together in a fun and encouraging atmosphere.  Runners may also reserve private lessons outdoors or at the indoor running studio for women, located in downtown Sun Prairie.

Runners are encouraged to get professionally fit for running shoes at Fleet Feet Sports in Sun Prairie.  Trained specialists will watch runners walk and run and select several options that best suit their foot strike and gait.  Fleet Feet also offers free weekly group runs and pub runs.
