This race includes distance options (half marathon, 10K, and 5K).
The course runs over the Hoan Bridge (Milwaukee landmark) and through the downtown area and by the lakefront, making for beautiful scenery that early in the morning. (Although you might want to not inhale through your nose on the Hoan, since you will run past the sewage plant!)
All finishers get a medal, and the 10K and half marathon finishers also get a tech shirt to wear. The one given last year was cool, except the stitching on mine came undone on one of the sleeves the first time I washed it.
Course support is exceptional, with aid stations and water every couple miles and very evenly spaced out.
The post-race party includes lots of live music and beer on the Summerfest grounds. You also get a free Summerfest ticket with your registration as well as a ticket to Polish Fest, which takes place that same weekend.
