Sign Up for the 2013 Brewers Mini-Marathon & 10K by Tuesday, April 30 and Save $20!
As the weather is finally starting to get nicer, it’s time to start thinking about getting back outside and being more active. So why not sign up for the Brewers Mini-Marathon and 10K, Presented by Sendik’s? And if you need a little more incentive, here it is: register by next Tuesday, April 30, you’ll save $20!
2012’s inaugural Mini-Marathon (13.1 miles) 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 me and John!) represented 32 states. New for the second year of the “Brewers Mini” is the addition of a 10K race (6.214 miles) for the event which will be held on Saturday, September 28, 2013.
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 this Tuesday April 30. The earlier you register, the more you save!
