Looking for an exciting new fall race?
While Chicago has earned the right to get the attention it deserves, look a little further north to Milwaukee for an exciting new series of events. The inaugural PNC Milwaukee Running Festival is a full weekend created to celebrate the city of Milwaukee’s neighborhoods and landmarks. On Halloween weekend (October 31st - November 1st) come to the city that runners in the area already know is a heckuva a place to run and learn why they know that to be true.
In addition to the traditional marathon and half-marathon, the Milwaukee Running Festival is included a 5k, and America's distance: the mile! The love affair that this country has with the mile is decades old and while the mile has often been replaced with the 1600 meter race, there is a movement to return it to its rightful prominence. Stake your claim to this all-American race by taking on the distance in Milwaukee!
Furthermore, with the mile race on Saturday, you can do both that and any of the other events on the next day. Double up for an entire weekend of fun. In addition, while there are some perfectly fine marathons in and around Milwaukee, none is run entirely within the City of Milwaukee like this one does!
All participants will enjoy a beautiful combination of city streets and parkways, including several of
Milwaukee’s historical landmarks and a diverse mix of neighborhoods. With a distance for all skill levels, everyone can have a chance to participate and bring home some bling. There is no excuse to not come and take part in a new tradition.
Especially when, Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated you can register for any of the races with this code (DANERUNS) and save $10 off the Marathon and Half Marathon, and $5 off the 5k Race and Mile Race!
I will be at the expo signing books and taking part in many of the races over the weekend myself. With weather that almost guarantees fast times, a course designed to help your legs churn out a new PR and a city warm and welcoming, it is going to be an exciting adventure.
Looking forward to seeing all of you there!
