MILWAUKEE — New for 2016 — the Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation hosts the inaugural Cream Puff 5K, a run/walk offering participants not only the first Original Cream Puffs of the year. The event will take place Wednesday, July 20 at 6:30 p.m. at Wisconsin State Fair Park in West Allis.

A news release indicates the 5K (3.1 miles) will feature a course that includes the Milwaukee Mile Speedway and streets within State Fair Park. The event will apparently be both kid- and stroller-friendly, and offer a 1K option for those who prefer a shorter route.

Officials say all registered participants will receive one free ticket to the 2016 Wisconsin State Fair, an original Cream Puff 5K t-shirt and a finisher’s ribbon, as well as one of the first Original Cream Puffs to be made in 2016.

The event will offer results, including timing, for registered participants. Registration is $30 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under until June 26. Adult pricing will increase beginning June 27.

The Cream Puff 5K will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. Same-day registration and packet pickup will be available prior to start of the race from 4-6 p.m. Packets can also be picked up prior to the race at various locations. For more information, visit creampuff5k.com.
