Run 4 Water MKE COVID-19 Statement We recently heard from Milwaukee County Parks that they are not issuing permits for any events until at least October so we are forced to cancel the 2020 Run 4 Water MKE. We are looking forward to next year's race on Sunday, April 25, 2021 and we'll share more details of that race as it gets closer. Thanks for your support of the Run 4 Water and EWB@UWM and we hope you'll be able to join us next year!
If you were already registered for the 2020 Run 4 Water MKE, you will have the option to roll over your registration fee to the 2021 race or get a refund. Please see RunSignup and check your email for options.
Though the outbreak will likely be under much better control in April 2021, we will implement several social distancing measures to make the event safer for participants and volunteers alike. We ask that runners not congregate near the Start/Finish line at the beginning and end of the race but rather space themselves out along the sidewalks leading away from the line following social distancing guidelines. The race chips on your race bib won't start timing you until you cross the Start/Finish line so there is no need to bunch up in close proximity with other participants before the start of the race. How far back you are from the Start/Finish line when the race officially starts has no impact on your ability to compete for medals and have your actual race time compared with others for the purpose of winning awards. If you are one of the small group of runners who isn't just interested in running a fast time but wants to actively race against other people, we will call you to come up to the line just before we start the race to minimize the amount of time you need to close to others. While we always take food safety seriously, we will evaluate the conditions at the time of the race and determine whether we are safely able to offer a water stop during the race and how we might modify our food and beverage offerings after the race to ensure the safety of our volunteers and the participants. If there are any other health guidelines in place on race day that we can use to make the race a safer experience for all we will certainly review those and make additional changes as well.
Thank you for your understanding and support and we hope to see you in April 2021! The Run 4 Water MKE Team
