Featured Event

There will be the I Love Spuds Fun Run this Wednesday, July 1st, at Jacobus Park Picnic Area 2 at 6:30 p.m.  Location is 6501 Hillside Ln, Milwaukee. Click here for the course map. Hosted by Jeff Weiss. Many of you know or have likely seen Jeff. He's in charge of the build up runs. You'll see him behind the camera at many events. He's just always there! Come on out, run, have a good time, eat some potatoes, meet some new people, drink a few beers. I'm sure he'd be happy to answer any questions about the build up runs as well. See you there!
