The world's largest indoor marathon held on the world's largest indoor running track.
Established in 2009, the Icebreaker Indoor Marathon has become the premier indoor distance running event in the United States. The race is held every January at the Pettit National Ice Center in Milwaukee and sells out each year. In addition to the flagship Marathon, it also features two Half Marathons, a 5k and a 100-team Marathon Relay.
The sister race to the Icebreaker Indoor Marathon, the Heatbreaker came on the scene in 2012 and gives distance runners some shade from the hot outdoor sun. Held in the perfectly cool Pettit National Ice Center, the event features a Half Marathon followed by a Marathon. Runners can sign up for both races to complete the Inferno Challenge. Held on the last Saturday of July, the Heatbreaker is one of a only a handful of distance running events in mid-summer due to the heat.
Teams of 2-4 people solve clues that lead them to interesting destinations around the city. Started in 2010, it's the oldest adventure race in Milwaukee. It is held the third Saturday of June. Our charity partner is the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation.
Our newest creation includes a marathon, half marathon, 50k race and a 20-mile "training run" with the entire course being in the Milwaukee County Parks along the shores of Lake Michigan. The course features a little of everything - from paved trails to dirt trails to sandy beach. The first event will be held on Labor Day Weekend in 2014. Charity partners include the Friends of Grant Park and the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation.
The race that started a national trend, the Patrick Cudahy Race for the Bacon 5k Run/Walk is held on a Thursday evening in late July or early August at beautiful Sheridan Park in Cudahy, Wis. The evening starts with the 5k race and is followed by the Bacon Bash which features delicious bacon-inspired dishes. Proceeds go to JDRF of Southeastern Wisconsin. The race was started in 2012 as the first bacon-themed 5k, and now many others have been sprouting up all over the country. We are the original!.
Run Around the World without Leaving State Fair Park
Started in 2001 as part of the Holiday Folk Fair, this family-friendly 5k is held the Sunday before Thanksgiving at Wisconsin State Fair Park. We took over the management of the race in 2013 and are working to grow it one of the "must-do" races in the Milwaukee area. The event serves as the kick-off for the Salvation Army's annual bell-ringing campaign.
There is not a more perfect community to hold a Thanskgiving Day race than Burlington, Wisconsin. The course is picturesque, the people are friendly and the cause is just. The Town Bank Turkey Trot was started in 2011 and has become one of the largest Thanksgiving Day races in Southeastern Wisconsin. Proceeds from the race and a post-race turkey and pie raffle benefit the food pantry at Love, Inc., a local community service organization.
Start your New Year off on the right foot... and the left!
Start the New Year with a 5k race in scenic Grant Park and follow it up with a quick (optional) splash in the frigid waters of Lake Michigan. We launched this race on New Year's Day 2013 and look forward to watching it grow into a holiday tradition. A portion of the proceeds go to the MS Society to help in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis.
