Brewers Mini Marathon and 10K Set for September 20; Registration Now Open!

Was one of your New Year’s resolutions to increase your fitness level and/or run a race? Great–let us help you with that!

The third annual “Brewers Mini-Marathon and 10K, Presented by Sendik’s” is set for Saturday, September 20, 2014.  Registration is now available online at www.brewersmini.com.

Last year a combined 7,000 runners, representing 38 states, participated in the Mini-Marathon (13.1 miles) and the 10K race (6.214 miles). The races both begin and end at beautiful Miller Park and offer scenic and unique courses that will take participants around and through many Milwaukee landmarks including the Miller Valley, the Harley-Davidson Museum, Mitchell Park Conservatory (The Domes), and the Miller Park warning track.  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 2015, 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. Refreshing snacks and water will be provided by Sendik’s at the finish line. 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.

Race participants helped to raise over $145,000 during the first two years of the Brewers Mini-Marathon and 10K, with all fundraising proceeds benefiting the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Inc.) and childhood cancer research in Wisconsin.  Fundraising for the MACC Fund is supported by the Brewers Community Foundation and participants can create their own fundraising page at www.brewersmini.com and submit online donations.  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).  The earlier you register, the more you save!

Race packets can be picked up at Miller Park on Thursday and Friday, September 18 and 19, 2014.

Complete race details, a course map and other information can all be found at www.brewersmini.com and www.brewers.com.

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.
