Run on the Island! Our community, rich in natural beauty and wildlife is nestled in the waters of Lake Michigan. The course of the runs/walks start and end at the Rec Center and will take you past meadows, woods, a vineyard and one of the best vistas on the island.
Enjoy the wildflowers and birds you’ll encounter along the course. You will follow the course markers for your particular event. Terrain is asphalt roads with some gentle inclines, so bring your running shoes accordingly. For more information on Washington Island, go to www.washingtonisland-wi.com.
Tortoise and Hare Time Management will be timing our event this year. Only runners will have chips in their bibs, not walkers. Thanks to support of our friends at Washington Island Ferry Line and Island Lavender. Without their sponsorship we would not be able to do this event with professional timing.
Medical services will be provided by the Washington Island Rescue Squad. EMR's will be available at the start/finish line and will be following the last runners.
All participants will receive a custom printed cotton T-shirt.
We thank all our local sponsors. You can see list of them printed on the back of your T-shirt.

Bikes and dogs
Bikes and dogs are not allowed on the course during the race. As always, dogs are allowed on the property but must be on the leash at all times. All animal waste must be picked up and removed from the site.
There will be water aid stations all along the course. Please be sure to check out your map for the location of these stations before you start the race. Keep it “GREEN”! Please bring your own water bottle. Uncap your bottle and the volunteers will refill your water bottle.
Restrooms are available inside the Mosling Recreation Center.
Thanks to financial support from the Community Center Committee as well as many generous volunteers, free swimming lessons were provided to 42 children at the Mosling Rec Center after school twice a week during February and April. These lessons were open to all children (Rec Center membership/facility use fee not required). Special thanks to volunteers Adam Steffen, Alex Anderson, Judy Ryan, Maryjeanne Schaffmeyer, and Christian Foss as well as other certified instructors, Dr. Beth Lux and Steve Waldron. Extra special thanks to Katie McGrane and the Rec Center staff.
Registration is now open for summer swimming lessons. Lessons will be held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from July 9 through August 1 starting at 9am. Any child (recommend minimum age of 4) on the Island during our summer session is welcome to join us. Lessons will continue to be free, however, donations to support the program are much appreciated.
Sign up forms will be sent home from school in late May or early June. Forms are also available at the Rec Center. Please return the form by Monday, June 17. While we prefer swimmers attend all 8 days, we request a minimum commitment of 4 days. Please note anticipated absences on the form.
A list of recommended placements for students who have participated in prior sessions will be posted at the Rec. Class placements are based on demonstrating exit assessment skills listed in the American Red Cross (ARC) Swim Lessons Achievement Booklet (available at the Rec) as well as the best judgment of the instructors to create a safe and balanced learning environment.
Swimming is a progressive skill so students will continue to learn and increase confidence in the water no matter their level. We focus on being safe around and in the water as well as relaxing and having fun. Students who have practiced skills since their last session may be advanced. Instructors may also recommend a different class based on our assessment and/or class sizes — thanks in advance for your understanding.
Times for each class level are:
Rock (ARC Preschool Aquatics) 9:00-9:30am
Dune/Starfish (ARC Level 1 and adventurous preschoolers) 9:35-10:05am
Sandbar (ARC Level 2) 10:10-10:40am
Paddle/Harbor/Sharks (ARC Level 3 and 4) 10:45-11:15am
Please be sure students are showered and ready to go at class time. Some goggles are available at the pool and may be worn during class. Masks covering the nose and water wings may not be used. Long hair should be tied back.
Again, summer’s four-week session starts Tuesday, July 9th. A parent or guardian will need to fill out a registration form by Monday, June 17. A parent or responsible adult must be in attendance for their child/children’s entire session. Please direct any questions, comments or concerns to swim instructor Paula Oeler (mobile/text 920-854-0035), Rec Center manager, Katie McGrane (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Community Center Committee representative Emily Small. Rec Center Front Desk: 920-84 7-2226. We are all looking forward to another fun and learning-filled session!

Hello all. We are looking to do our first color run of the year. With two of them complete last year we think we will be pros this year! Hoping the weather is going to warm up here soon to have a lot of fun. Going to be getting new shirts ordered, but if you have your old ones please bring them along for a discount. This event is weather dependent, so if raining we will post-pone to another day. This event is a fun, non-timed, non-competitive fun time with lots of laughs and color. The color we use is a safe powder. I have sunglasses for purchase ($1) otherwise bring a pair of your own. If interested or if you have questions please call the Rec Center 847-2226
