Dear Sweet Home Milwaukee 5k friends-
We hope you and your families are happy, healthy, and well. This news is unlikely a surprise- we will be moving this year's Sweet Home Milwaukee 5k to a fully virtual race. When we rescheduled the event a few months ago, we were hopeful that we would be able to come back this year. Rather than rescheduling once more, we will celebrate this year's 5k accomplishment from a distance. Please know and understand that these decisions are the best for our loved ones and the community, and we look forward to the time when the City and Parks Department will allow events to occur once again.
We are grateful for your support and look forward to seeing you cross your own finish line! Your continued involvement not only supports the endurance event industry, it helps nearly a dozen companies keep their operations going during this time.
All race packets will be mailed for no additional cost to the address on your Run Sign Up account. There is no further action needed from you. Details on how to submit your virtual results will be sent in August and the virtual race still gets you your sweet, bottle-opening magnetic medal, shirt, and other goodies. Plus, you get to complete the distance on your own time, at any socially distant place you'd like! We will begin mailing race packets on August 15. Please allow 5-7 days for delivery. For registrations after August 15, we will mail packets on a rolling basis (tell your friends- we have medals that need homes!)
Share your photos with us! It's a scary and weird time, and while we know this is not the same, we hope we can run together at our beautiful Lakefront soon!
With health and gratitude,
Sam & Alex Ogden
