  • Details from event's RunSignUp.com listing:

    The Milwaukee River Challenge 5K is the only downtown 5K and 2-mile walk that takes runners along the Milwaukee Riverwalk, through Brewer's Hill and around the historic Schlitz Brewery turned office campus. The 5K race was started by the late Gary Grunau, the previous owner of the Schlitz Park campus whose impact on both development and philanthropy changed the downtown scene as we know it.

    The Milwaukee River Challenge 5K and 2-Mile Walk attracts more than 500 runners that include individuals, teams, corporate partners and Milwaukee community members. Each year the 5K has generated thousands of dollars in funds for the selected beneficiary.

    New event activations this year include the Tap Yard Beer Garden, live music and a Riverwalk marketplace.

    Race Registration for individual runners, corporate teams, and community members will be open in May! Sponsorship activations are now available! For more information email the 5K Coordinator Sam at SDenny@lpc.com.

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.

ALWAYS visit the race's website for the most complete and accurate race information.
