The Milwaukee Hurling Club is hosting a team for the 2013 Run/Walk to Milwaukee Irish Fest


The Milwaukee Hurling Club is hosting a team for the 2013 run/walk to Milwaukee Irish Fest. This is a run/walk with prizes for top runners in each gender/age group.  Run will be held on Saturday, August 17th starting at the North gate of Meier Festival Park.  Here is the schedule:

  • 8:00 a.m. – Registration & Kid Zone Open
  •  9:30 a.m. – Pre-race Warm Up & Stretching
  • 10:00 a.m. – Run Begins * 10:05 a.m. – Walk Begins
  • 10:45 a.m. – Post-event Celebration & Award Ceremony


Post-event includes a free beer for participants whose race packets are picked up ahead of time (the Irish equivalent of dangling a carrot in front of a horse). Cost is $30 for adults, $15 for kids 12 and under.  Add $5 if registering after August 7th.  Proceeds benefit the Arthritis Foundation.  For your money, you get:

  • Beer! (value $5)
  • Free admission to Irishfest the day of the race (value $ 17)
  • An event T-shirt (value $10)
  • Satisfaction of knowing that you have helped a great cause in the fight against arthritis (value: priceless)
  • Warmed up for the Saturday scrimmages (value: your pride)

Your $30 entry fee brings you $32 + infinity payback!!  That’s like getting paid to run!  This is also a great way to show our appreciation to one of our new sponsors.
