    I enjoyed this race, the course is scenic and most of it is along the Milwaukee lakefront. There is a hill as you go up to the bluff along Lake Park but that is the only sizable hill. Some of the race is on sidewalks and most of it is on a bike path. The race is a little crowded at the beginning but there should not be an issue passing other runners. There were about 900 runners and the race is capped at a little more than that.

    There were many water stations, though the course map did not show where they were and there seemed to be more of a concentration of them at the end of the race.

    The course goes onto Summerfest Island and there was some confusion there as some runners did not make the loop around the island. It seems the course marshal was not there at some point during the race. It extended the course by only about .10 mile however.

    The race was Halloween weekend and about a quarter of the runners wore costumes. After the race there was a band playing at the Italian Community Center, where the race begins and ends. In the past there was a DJ that played dance music.

    I didn’t pick up my packet until the day of the race and had no issues. Parking was $5 at the Italian Community Center. The shirt was a long sleeve tech tee which was available in XS, which was really nice.

    The race was also relatively cheap, $35 for a 15K, with a discount if you are a Badgerland Strider member. No medal however. The top runners received disco ball trophies. The only downside is the weather can be highly variable at this time of year in Wisconsin. Normal temps are around 50, but this year it was 64 at race start.
