    This was the 25th running of the Trailbreaker, a small set of races in Waukesha, WI. There are full marathon, half marathon, 10K and 5K options, something for everyone. 🙂 This is the major fundraiser for the Waukesha Parks Foundation. I ran the half marathon. The course for the half marathon was partly on city streets (about 3 miles), cobblestone paths around a river, and the majority was on a paved bike trail. Those that ran the full marathon also ran on the Ice Age Trail (single track dirt trail) through the Lapham Peak State Park, and up a tower.

    The race is well-organized with plenty of water stops. The only hiccup was that a train crossed the path of some of the fastest half marathoners, causing about a 40 second wait. Trains are rare across that part of the bike trail. Otherwise traffic was stopped at all intersections. The half marathon course was an out and back course, with a slightly modified route (shorter than the start) to the finish, it is about 7 miles to the turnaround. While the bike trail is about 3 wide there were no problems with passing. There are no hills on the course.

    Race swag for those that signed up ahead of time was a long sleeve tech tee. Those that signed up late received a coffee mug, which actually looked quite nice. It would have been nice to have a choice between the mug and tee for those that signed up in advance. All finishers received a medal for all race distances this year. Top 3 AG winners also received a nice printed certificate. There were also Master’s awards.

    Bagels, fruit, and water were provided at the end of the race, as well as beer. Weather at this time can be volatile in WI, but it was a beautiful day for running this year. Overall, this is a very nice race to start off the racing season.
