Thousand Miler: An Event

Tuesday, September 26th  |  5:30PM - 6:30PM

Downtown Location Only

In 36 action-packed days, Melanie Radzicki McManus ran along Wisconsin's 1,100-mile Ice Age Trail, setting the women's speed record (at age 52!) and becoming one of the trail's elite Thousand-Milers.


Join us on Tuesday, September 26th as we welcome Melanie Radzicki McManus, author of the memoir Thousand-Miler: Adventures Hiking the Ice Age Trail (Wisconsin Historical Society Press, 2017), as she talks about her record-setting trek along the 1,100-mile Ice Age National Scenic Trail. She will also speak about the trail and its development — it's one of just 11 National Scenic Trails nationwide — and discuss the various successful strategies other thousand-milers have used in their hikes.
