WAUSAU, WI (July 18, 2019) - The Badger State Games' Summer Games are celebrating 35 years of bringing Olympic-style sporting events to Wisconsin, allowing athletes of all ages and abilities to "Go for the Gold". Custom spinning medals in Gold, Silver, and Bronze are new this year to commemorate our 35th Anniversary. Those who medal are then eligible to compete in the State Games of America taking place in Lynchburg, VA. Here's what's coming up this weekend.
BSG Mountain Bike Series - Rock'N'Root
The Rhinelander Area Silent Trails Association (RASTA) will hold the 8th Annual WEMS Rock'N'Root race at the Washburn Lake Silent Sports Trails Area, approximately 6 miles west of Rhinelander, WI. This is the first year RASTA has partnered with Badger State Games to host this WEMS race. Medals will be awarded for short distance or three-hour race in seven categories. The course will utilize both single- and double-track to provide an exciting and demanding seven-mile loop. As the name suggests, riders can expect plenty of rocks and roots as obstacles. On-site registration is available up until 15 minutes prior to the start of each event. Find more information at www.visitwausau.com/
