Famous Racing Sausages Run/Walk a Success! Brewers Mini is 10 Weeks from Today!
Today, 4,000 people took part in the sold-out Brewers Community Foundation’s 15th Annual 5K Famous Racing Sausages Run/Walk and it was a huge success!
The top time was 15:55:20 (a 5:08 pace, wow!) by Ben Garbe of New Berlin and the top finisher in the mascot division was Polish. If you ran today’s race, click here for searchable results. This link will take you to a .PDF of complete results as well.
The weather was absolutely perfect as Milwaukee was given a little relief from the recent humid air of the past week. Brewers coaching assistant Joe Crawford served as the Celebrity Starter for this year’s race.
Fundraising efforts for the event raised money for Fisher House Wisconsin, which provides a “home away from home” for military and veterans’ families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury at the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee.

We’ve compiled some of the photos and tweets we’ve received via Twitter and Instagram, but we’d love to see yours, too! It was cool to see people taking photos along the way during the race. Tweet and/or Instagram your comments and photos using the hashtag #Sausage5K.
This event is a perfect precursor to the Brewers Mini-Marathon, which takes place 10 weeks from today, on Saturday, September 28. Registration is still open and you can save by signing up by Wednesday, July 31.
Congratulations to everyone who participated and finished the race today and thanks to the many volunteers who helped put on such a great event. There is nothing like that feeling of crossing the finish line and it was great to see the smiles on the faces of everyone as they crossed the line.
