Registration opens September 1st!

The 8th Annual Run for the Hill of It 5K Trail Run challenges runners to run three miles on mostly unpaved trail through the scenic Baird Creek Greenway, and then tackle “The Big Hill” a.k.a. Triangle Hill (500 Beverly Road) on October 17th, 2020, in Green Bay, WI. (The Little Hill Racers run, for youth 10 and under, has been canceled for 2020.)

This fun and challenging event allows participants to come out and enjoy nature while getting some exercise running through the Greenway. Proceeds from the event directly benefit projects in the Baird Creek Greenway. Staggered start times will be incorporated this year to allow for physical distancing.

As part of our annual 5K run/walk event The Animal House Pet Clinic, Festival Foods and the Baird Creek Preservation Foundation are hosting a dog event for the community to come out and participate with their furry friends. Walk, run, pad…however you want to get to the finish line, all dogs are welcome. Pick your start time when you register: times are 10:30 a.m., 10:45 a.m., or 11:00 a.m. Thanks to The Animal House Pet Clinic and to Festival Foods (supplying tennis balls for participants) for sponsoring the event!

Bike For the Hill of It : Due to numerous unforeseen and uncontrollable circumstances when trying to host a brand NEW event during COVID 19, we have made the difficult decision to pull the Bike for the Hill of It – bike race, off the calendar. We hope to offer this event in 2021 to our level of expectation and standard. The Run for the Hill of it is still on as it was a pre-existing event and has not been affected.

Not interested in running? Register online ( to help out by volunteering your time either Friday night, October 16th, or Saturday, October 17th!

A special thank you to this year’s event sponsors!!!
