Kettle Classic Bike Walk Run "Socially Distanced" Event

9th edition

                                              WE'RE TURNING 9!

Join us as we celebrate our 9th annual Kettle Classic, Bike Walk Run Event.

Lad Lake is in a time of growth and innovation. We are adding new programs and evolving others. We will be trying some new virtual reality technology to see how it can help the healing process for our clients. We are refurbishing many of our residential units for the young people we serve. We’re doing these things because we want to change the lives of more youth and families so everyone has an opportunity for a brighter future.

Whether it is a leisurely walk, a well-paced run, or a bicycle ride through the stunning Kettle Moraine, Lad Lake’s Kettle Classic offers something for everyone. You will find tremendous gratification knowing that your participation in the Kettle Classic will help challenged youth cross the finish line of success.

Proceeds directly support more than 1,100 kids in our care each year. With the community’s support, we are able to provide support networks for foster kids, skill-building and vocational/academic education for traumatized youth, and a safe-haven for exploited and abused girls.

When challenged youth find a better course in life everybody wins!  If you have joined us in the past welcome back, if it's your first time welcome to our circle of support. 


 Participants must follow the CDC Guidelines for participation.

There is plenty of space for social distancing. When passing a slower participant, participants should shout “passing on your left”. The participant will pass, leave six feet, and then merge right. 


Upon completing your event and crossing the finish line, participants must continue moving towards the exit of the finish area. When you cross the finish line, please move outside of the arena for your cool down.


On your emailed registration receipt, there will be a registration link that you can forward to your friends to let them know they should join you on your next adventure! For every 5 friends, you get to register for the event using your unique email link, you'll get $30 back on your registration!

We need volunteers for everything from registration, helping to mark the course, the rest-stop station, and helping as course marshals. If you or your group have an interest in volunteering, we would greatly appreciate the assistance. All volunteers will receive a free t-shirt.

 If you have questions about registration or have a group to volunteer contact Bridgett at
