Milwaukee River Challenge Cancelled

For the last few months, the Schlitz Park management team has been working to analyze all aspects of the Milwaukee River Challenge 5K. In response to the ongoing public health concerns brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, the decision to cancel the 9th annual Milwaukee Riverwalk Challenge 5K was made.

As a registered participant you have the option to receive a full refund for your 2020 race entry or donate your entry fee to the 5K beneficiary, College Possible.

Please respond to this email by Monday, June 27, 2020 with the option you’d like to choose. Please note, if you do not respond by July 27, 2020, your entry fee will be automatically donated to College Possible.

Schlitz Park is beyond grateful of your support for our event. We hope to be able to bring you an evening of fun on the Riverwalk in 2021! If you have any questions, please let me know.
