Walk Wisconsin

Held annually the first Saturday in June each year, Walk Wisconsin is the premier walking event in the Midwest! This is a non-competitive event, encouraging walkers of all ages and ability levels. The full, 3/4, 1/2 and 1/4 marathon events utilize the scenic Green Circle Trail which passes the Wisconsin River, Plover River, several lakes, and unique ecosystems. The trail base for all routes include a combination of wood chips, crushed granite, road surface and wood boardwalk.

Please be at the Pfiffner Park bandshell 1/2 hour before transportation starts for your event.

Comfort stops are open based on official start times and are available approximately every 3 miles. If you start earlier than the scheduled time for your specific event, there is no guarantee of food/beverages at the stops and transportation is your responsibility.

No strollers or pets for any marathon event.

Finish line picnic/entertainment at Pfiffner Park Bandshell: 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm.

Event check-in will take place at the Pfiffner Park building, 501 Franklin Street, along Stevens Point's downtown riverfront.

All registered attendees are required to check-in before walking. At check-in participants will be given a sports sack, t-shirt, course map, event information and participant number/wristband.

Varsity Hitting Baseball Camp Sunday 2/2/14

One of our best-attended camps, hitting camp is a great way for ballplayers to hone their swing during the winter months. With two sessions for the young hitter and four sessions for the teenage ballplayer, there is ample opportunity for retention of information and long-term skill improvement. We introduce drills and learning cues that will facilitate understanding of the most important aspects of rotational hitting (stance, load, stride, timing, swing path, & contact points). Campers will also be instructed about things such as plate discipline, adjusting swing planes, opposite-field hitting, two-strike hitting approach, and hitting the off-speed pitch. Campers must provide their own bats for this camp.
