Registration open for Brewers Mini-Marathon
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Registration is now open for the eighth annual Brewers Mini-Marathon. The event, which will be held Saturday, September 28, features a half marathon, 10K and a family-friendly 5K race. Last year, nearly 4,800 runners and walkers participated in the event.
All three races begin and end at Miller Park and offer courses that take runners on a tour of Milwaukee through the Miller Valley, Doyne Park, Walker’s Point and past a number of landmarks, including Potawatomi Casino and the Harley-Davidson Museum. In the course’s last mile, runners will experience the thrill of racing along the Miller Park warning track.
Each course will have aid stations with water and Gatorade for runners. Snacks and drinks will be provided at the finish line, followed by a post-race tailgate party outside Miller Park featuring live music for both runners and spectators. Parking will be free.
Prizes will be awarded for the top finishers of each race, but every participant will receive a ticket voucher for select Brewers home games in April and May 2020, a race-specific finisher’s medal and an exclusive shirt.
Over the past seven years, Brewers Mini-Marathon participants have helped raise over $280,000 to benefit the MACC Fund and childhood cancer research in Wisconsin.
Runners who register early will receive the lowest price to sign up, as registration fees will increase as race day approaches. The current registration pricing is $65 for the half marathon, $55 for the 10K and $30 for the 5K.
The rest of the pricing schedule is as follows:
- March 2 – May 3: $75 for the half marathon, $60 for the 10K and $35 for the 5K
- May 4 – August 16: $85 for the half marathon, $65 for the 10K and $35 for the 5K
- August 17 – September 25: $95 for the half marathon, $70 for the 10K, and $40 for the 5K
