In 2013, Resolve to Run the Brewers Mini or 10K!
Did you make a New Year’s resolution to exercise more, start running and/or train for a race?
Then sign up for the Brewers-Mini Marathon or 10K, presented by Sendik’s!
You’ve got plenty of time to train leading up to this fun event, which will take place on Saturday, September 28, 2013.
If you followed the blog in 2012, you know that 2012’s inaugural Mini-Marathon was a big success. We raised over $111,000 in proceeds to the MACC Fund and sold out over a month before the race date. More than 5,000 runners (including us!) represented 32 states.
The half marathon and 10K begins and ends at beautiful Miller Park and offers a scenic and unique course that will take participants through many Milwaukee landmarks including the Miller Valley, the Harley-Davidson Museum, Mitchell Park Conservatory (The Domes), the Miller Park warning track and others. Prizes for the top finishers will be awarded.
All participants will receive a free Brewers ticket voucher good for select games at Miller Park in April or May of 2014, a participant medal and a “tech” shirt. A post-race tailgate party outside Miller Park with live music will also take place.
Great course support will be provided with 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.
Fundraising proceeds from the Brewers Mini-Marathon and 10K, Presented by Sendik’s will once again benefit the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Inc.) and childhood cancer research in Wisconsin. Participants can create their own fundraising page at www.brewersmini.com and donations can be made online. Individual fundraisers will have the chance to get their name entered in a raffle for great prizes. The top three fundraising groups will win a special prize.
The cost for the Mini-Marathon and 10K, respectively, is $65/$45 for those registering by April 30, $75/$55 for those registering between May 1 – July 31, $85/$65 for those registering between August 1 – September 20 and $100/$80 for those registering on packet pick-up day (if space is available).
That means, the earlier you register, the more you save!
Race packets can be picked up at Miller Park on Friday, September 27, 2013. Complete race details, a course map and other information can all be found at http://www.brewersmini.com/.
We had so much fun sharing our training with you in 2012 and we’re looking forward to more fun this year, too!
