Can you believe it is just 12 weeks until the Brewers Mini-Marathon? Time is running out to start training properly–and to save on registration fees!
Regular Entry ends on Tuesday, July 31st; after that, Late Entry fees kick in, so if you’re on the fence or just haven’t gotten around to signing up yet, now is the time to do it!
If you haven’t heard about the Brewers Mini yet, the 13.1 mile race will start and finish at Miller Park, taking participants on a scenic route past a number of iconic Milwaukee landmarks along the way, such as Saz’s State House, the Miller Valley and Miller Brewery, the Mitchell Park Domes, Potawatomi Bingo Casino, the Harley-Davidson Museum and Palermo’s Pizza. Runners will also run through the park along the warning track.
The event will come with plenty of fun and entertainment as all participants will receive a free Brewers ticket voucher good for select 2012 or 2013 games at Miller Park, a participant medal, a “tech” shirt and a post-race tailgate party outside Miller Park with live music.
Great on-course support will be provided with 10 aid stations featuring water and Gatorade, misting stations, and entertainment along the way. Spectators will have plenty of free parking at Miller Park and will have the opportunity to watch racers run through Miller Park while being shown on the scoreboard.
Additionally, participants can raise money for the MACC Fund, benefitting childhood cancer research in Wisconsin.
Participants can sign up for the race and organize their own fundraising page online at www.brewersmini.com.
We are all in the midst of training for the race ourselves, so we hope you’ll join us on Saturday, September 22!

Here’s a recap of our training posts to date:
The Miami Marlins are in town for a four-game series beginning tonight at Miller Park, and the featured item at the Loge Level Chef’s Table is “Miami’s Own Cuban Sandwich.”
Miami is full of Latin flair and this sandwich brings a little bit of that to Miller Park. The traditional sandwich is served with roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese, sliced pickles and dijonnaise on fresh bread. As always, the famous house made chips are served on the side.
Additionally, the fresh “Corn Off the Cob” is back. This side dish featured corn cut off the cob right in front of you and served with your choice of Parmesan butter or Chipotle ranch seasoning. this is a perfect side for sharing and goes well with the Cuban sandwich.
The Cuban sandwich is $9.50 and the corn side is $3.00. As always, these items can be found at the Chef’s Table outside section 215 at Miller Park. The Cuban sandwich is for this week only!
