Last year a combined 7,200 runners, representing 39 states and 6 countries, 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 with unique courses that take participants past Milwaukee landmarks including the Miller Valley, Mitchell Park Conservatory (The Domes) and the opportunity to run inside Miller Park on the field warning track.

All participants will receive a free Brewers ticket voucher good for select games at Miller Park in April or May of 2016, a participant medal and a “tech” shirt.  A post-race party at Miller Park with live music will also take place. Prizes for the top finishers will be awarded.

Great course support will be provided with aid stations featuring water and Gatorade and misting stations 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.

During the first three years of the Brewers Mini-Marathon and 10K, race participants have helped to raise over $190,000 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 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).  Race packets can be picked up at Miller Park on Thursday and Friday, September 24 and 25, 2015.

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

Off to the Races! Time to Start Training for the 5K, 10K or Brewers Mini!
