Packet Pickup Info:
Thank you to the people who picked up last night early. Packet pickup is 7-8:45pm under the white tent on the corner of Wells and Jefferson Streets by Taylor’s Bar. Please arrive early as we need to shut the tent down at 8:45pm to prepare for the race. Have QR code ready.

Fast runners please make your way to the front. Average to slower runners please hang out in the back by cathedral square park and let the aggressive runners go first. Your timing starts when you cross the Start Line and ends when you cross the Finish line so there’s plenty of time to complete the race so you do not need to rush to the front.
Please hang out in the back by Cathedral square park and let the runners take off. Also if you plan only to walk half the race please make sure you end your race at Wells street and walk directly back to the park and avoid Jefferson Street and the finish.
There will be water locations on Broadway just over halfway through the race in front of the Milwaukee Athletic Club and also at the finish on Wells street by the Kroger truck.
Start / Finish Line:
The start line will be on Jefferson street heading south and end in the same location. When you finish please proceed to the Kroger water truck on Wells street. You can then redeem the FREE water or beer at any bar location.
On your bib is the drink coupon. Rip off to redeem at any of our bars. You can also choose from any beer or water. (Beer only, no seltzers or wine)
