Dust off your racing flats, MKE! The brand-new Traveling Beer Garden 5k Race Series is coming to town this summer. The series is held entirely in Milwaukee County Parks, with each race finishing at the Parks Traveling Beer Garden.
According to the race website, this is Wisconsin’s only traveling beer garden 5k run series. All runners will receive a chip time, custom Beer Garden 5K shirt and a free pint full of Sprecher beer or Sprecher root beer.
Sound good to you? Here are the dates and places you’ll want to get on your calendar:
Thursday, May 19 – Whitnall Park
Thursday, June 16 – Froemming Park
Thursday, July 7 – Grant Park

We recommend registering for these races ASAP. Now through four weeks prior to the event, running the entire series costs just $120. Registration for individual races will open Feb. 4 and the races will cost $30 each until four weeks prior to the event. If you opt out of receiving one of the custom shirts, you’ll save $5 on individual races or $15 on the series.
