Support the Walleye - and all the fish in the Whitefish Chain!

Join our annual community-wide effort to maintain the Whitefish Area's gamefish habitat. Established in memory of Grandpa Boots Buthman, this Crosslake tradition offers events for all ages and abilities.  Run, walk or dash for the fun and for the fish.!  Then spend the day enjoying the lake and attend the fireworks over Cross Lake in the evening.

The run provides all participants with professional chip timing and results on a certified race course. For race results go to Pickle Events.
