IRONBULL Featured in Mayor's Newsletter

ironbull is coming to the xtreme sports capital

Helping to reinvent Wausau as the Xtreme Sports Capital of the USA with our government, business, foundations and civic leaders.  We are building on a history of outdoor sporting activities that traces its roots back to 1937 with the opening of the ski hill on Rib Mountain.  Today venues include Granite Peak, the Whitewater Park, 9-Mile Forest, Ringle Bike Trails, and Mountain Biking on Sylvan Hill. 

xtreme weekends

Each IRONBULL race incorporates Xtreme Weekend events from a one-of-a-kind health & wellness festival, to 1k baby IRONBULL runs, to a Xtreme Playground on the 400 Block, to music venues.  The city will become a destination from recreational to elite race participants to spectators from across the Midwest.    

OUR Mission

IRONBULL Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that hosts extreme endurance, running, paddling, biking, adventure, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing races. Central Wisconsin is home to a young and growing community of extreme sports enthusiasts, where active and healthy living is an integral part of who they are and competition is a way of life.

  4. Coordinate with other organizations to create a calendar of sporting events in Central Wisconsin that leverage existing and future recreational assets in the area.

  5. Races act as a lifestyle magnet for millennials to live and work in Central Wisconsin.

  6. Rebrand Wausau as the Xtreme Sports Capital of the USA.
