Schlitz Park

MILWAUKEE — There are literally dozens of runs and walks you can tackle every summer in southeast Wisconsin. But Schlitz Park is offering a new one in June. It could be the shortest run on the season’s calendar.

Schlitz Park announced Thursday it’s hosting what’s believed to be Milwaukee’s first-ever competitive, cash award, one-mile road race. The event will take place Tuesday, June 26th at 5:30 p.m. Starting at the office park, participants will run or walk a challenging course that twists, turns, climbs, descends and loops through the adjacent historic neighborhood.

For the inaugural Schlitz Park Miler, the fastest three men’s and women’s runners under age 20, between ages 21 and 40, and over ages 41, will be eligible for $100, $60 and $40 cash awards.

Proceeds for the Schlitz Park Miler will benefit DreamBikes Milwaukee, a non-profit, organization that strategically places used bicycle stores in low-income troubled communities and hires local teens.
