Hello Striders and friends:

NEW Click here for photos from the Firecracker Four held on July 4th, 2014.
Second marathon build-up run location added! There will be build-up runs in the same distances and times as the current Milwaukee location. The only difference is that they will be on Sundays, beginning June 29th rather than Saturdays. This is beneficial to anyone who may miss a Saturday event but wishes to do a longer run with a semi-organized group. Route maps, aid stations and refreshments will be available.
Group will meet at:
Kettle Moraine YMCA - River Shores
705 Village Green Way, Suite 201
West Bend, WI 53090
(P) 262 247 1050

The next marathon build-up run is on Saturday, August 2nd at Lake Park at 7:30 a.m.
It is a 14 mile run. The Strider Marathon Build-up runs begin and finish at the picnic area just west of the lawn bowling area and the Lake Park Pavilion, 3133 Newberry Blvd. Aurora Sports Medicine Institute provides both financial support for this program as well as staff on-site at these runs. We especially want to thank Doc Gordon for being available to runners for questions and evaluations. Click here to see the full build-up run schedule. (See the information on a second build-up run on Sundays in West Bend on this web page.)
NOTE: I checked with Jeff Weiss and the build-up run is at Lake Park this week, not Estabrook Park, as was announced at the build-up run on July 19th.
