Mostly, registrations and pre-race packet pick-ups occur in advance for Wisconsin and area races and running activities, although some events may invite drop-ins, race-day enrollments, and on-site sign-ups (as space allows). Race participants, volunteers, and other attendees are exhorted to confirm arrangements directly with race organizers or event hosts, as area race and running highlight dates and other details may change, particularly if extreme winter weather occurs.
