The 2019 Karner Blue Race was held on Saturday, July 20, 2019!
More than 150 runners compete each year in the Karner Blue Races sponsored by the Black River Area Chamber of Commerce.
The races include a half-marathon, 10K and 5K. The half-marathon is one of the most challenging courses in the state and all the races are chipped-timed and sanctioned.

The Black River Area Chamber of Commerce thanks the following individuals and businesses that volunteered or contributed to make the 15th annual Karner Blue Race another successful event!
