Check It Out: Hitting Your Stride

Hey MKE! Who’s getting excited for the inaugural Milwaukee Running Festival? We’re finding it hard to believe it’s only a little more than two weeks away. But in our minds that means the party at the finish line is that much closer 😉

Anyhow, today, we want to share an upcoming event that will benefit anyone participating in the upcoming Milwaukee Running Festival – or really just anyone that runs or is into fitness!

Hitting Your Stride is a collaboration between the Milwaukee Running Festival and the Downtown YMCA and will include a 1-mile time trial and circuit workout lead by the YMCA’s fantastic group exercise instructors.

Date: Saturday, Oct. 17; 12-1:30pm

Location: Downtown YMCA (inside Grand Avenue Mall)

Cost: Free for all participants; donations to the Y will be accepted

You can use your time trial results to hone in on a realistic race-day goal pace. During the circuit workout, you’ll move through conditioning and stretching exercises to help you get to the start – and finish – line strong and healthy.

All ability levels are encouraged to attend and there will be several time-trial heats to ensure participants run with others at a similar pace. There’s no need to pre-register for this event and you do not need to be a YMCA member or signed up for the Milwaukee Running Festival to participate.

As an added bonus, all event participants can enter a raffle to win either a Milwaukee Running Festival race entry or a Milwaukee Running Festival VIP package.
