Event Description

The 12th Annual Milwaukee River Challenge splashes into town as dozens of collegiate and club teams from across the nation test their stamina and precision on the Milwaukee and Menomonee Rivers.

Heats feature boats of four and eight, beginning at 25th and Canal streets on the Menomonee River, heading east to the Milwaukee River and finishing at race headquarters at Schlitz Park.

Take in spectacular views and cheer teams on as they voyage through the picturesque, three-mile route. Spectators can perch themselves at the Harley-Davidson Museum grounds, Pere Marquette Park or along the Milwaukee RiverWalk. Also providing great vantage points are downtown's many riverside restaurants and overhead bridges. Live broadcasts of each race can be heard at Schlitz Park. For more information, visit
