What is the Quad Challenge?Any runner who completes all four of the Badger Mountain races (15K, 55K, 50 mile and 100 mile) will receive a special award (currently a custom embroidered Craft brand running jacket).
You can finish the 4 distances in any order, any year.
The 15K Ruck division counts the same as the 15K towards completing the quad (meaning, you don't have to do both of them).
You MUST notify the Race Director if you are close to completing the Quad Challenge (preferably before you finish your 4th event).
Your participation in the quad challenge is not tracked until you make it known that you are interested. In other words, we don't know that you've done the Quad unless you tell us.
In 2017 Brendan Thompson became the FIRST finisher of the Quad Challenge.
Brendan's times were:
50k; 4:14:52 in 2012
15k; 55:29 in 2015
50-miler; 8:45:52 in 2016
100-miler; 19:28:51 in 2017
Total = 33hours, 25minutes

In 2019 we had three more finishers!
Dan Hansen (the first to do the quad in descending order = 100, 50M, 50K, 15K)
Dominique Wilmore (our FIRST FEMALE quad finisher!!)
The four different distances can be completed in any order, in any year.
