Thank you Milwaukee Area Runners, walkers and party people!

Thanks to you, the Discovery Run is sold out for 2013 several weeks early.  We are looking to have some fun with you on October 26th and if you were not able to get in, we hope you will mark your calendar for May 1, 2014 when we will open registration for next year.  On behalf of the Badgerland Striders, thank you for the support.



"Get Your Motors Running"....


Starts at 9:00AM at the Italian Community Center. Last year was the first for our new course and the participants have overwhelmingly expressed their support. The course will remain the same with a few "minor tweaks" of improvements. The start/finish line will be moved slighty further from the warm confines of the ICC but the reward is that it's that much closer to the Ale House for our HUGE kick-butt after-party!!! The course will remain open for two hours (until 11:00am). Please use caution if you are finishing after this time; there will not be officials on the course.
