Welcome to the 2012 SOUTHERN KETTLE CLASSIC p/b The Southern Kettle chapter of IMBA

OK the DNR has dropped the hammer on the EMMA idea so the 2012 Southern Kettles Classic will be at John Muir. In following tradition, this year we will have a longer lap. The 75 mile race starts at 10:00 am. The 50 mile race will start at 1:00 pm. Then the last race of the day, the 25 mile race will start at 3:00 pm.

The lap will be the Blue loop to the orange loop backwards (right in the roller coaster section after the bench) to the white loop, jump back on the purple loop (rainy dew) and finish on the blue. So about 13 miles. If you pre ride please be very careful on the section of orange backwards, it would be preferable if you would walk this section. Its really only 100 feet.

The last lap will have to be completed by 8:00pm Registration is open at Day of registration will open at 8:00 am.

State park fees apply to all riders and cars parking.

There is camping in 3 DNR camping areas with 15 miles. Ottawa lake, Whitewater Lake and Pinewoods. All reservation must be made on line through the WI DNR website. There is no on site camping at the trail head. There is plenty of room for easy ups and tents along the start finish area during the event.

There is no official address for the Muir trail, Its 5 miles south of Palmyra on HWY H or 1 mile north on HWY H  and HWY 12 from Lagrange.
