Brewers Mini Marathon + 10K Wrap-Up
Last Saturday, over 7,000 participants from 41 states turned out at Miller Park for the second annual Brewers Mini-Marathon, (with a 10K added on this year!). For the most part, runners had great weather–a beautiful fall day that got just a little warm toward the end of the race.
The scenic course took runners past the Palermo’s Pizza Factory, the Harley-Davidson Museum, Marquette University, the Mitchell Park Domes, the Miller Valley, Saz’s Restaurant, through Miller Park with a loop on the warning track and ended just outside the front of the ballpark.
Congratulations go out to Scott Mueller of Pewaukee, Wis. who finished the Brewers Mini first overall with a time of 1:13.50–a pace of 5:38! The women’s top finisher was Dani Fischer of Madison, Wis. with a time of 1:18.30. If you’ll recall, Dani was our top female finisher last year as well; she beat last year’s time by 19 seconds! For the 10K, Aaron Nodolf of Menomonee Falls, Wis. was the top finisher with a time of 34:20.
