The race directors established a goal of promoting an affordable, well-managed race. Having run many races over the years, the race directors adopted the philosophy of a run for runners, managed by runners.” Learning from their racing experiences, they understood what separated the good runs from the so-so runs. Profit generation was not and is not an objective of the Point Bock Run. Any profits, however, are returned to the sport of running under the race’s mission of Supporting and promoting running and healthy lifestyles in Central Wisconsin.” The Point Bock Run is further evidence of Stevens Point’s and Portage County’s reputation for being a running community. Many state and national champions have run for UW-Stevens Point, Stevens Point Area Senior High, and other local high schools. Stevens Point is proud of it’s Green Circle Trail, which features over 27 miles of running trails circling the city.
