A Record Breaking Miler & Exciting Day of Bike Racing
The 3rd Annual Schlitz Park Miler was a success with more than 200 participants running and walking. This year’s dash included the breaking of the previous men’s course record of 4:29 by Matthew Scott with a 4:25.63 run. The women’s 5 minute record remains but the ladies were equally exciting with a third place overall finish by 11-year-old Catherine Nelson with a 5:55.78.
Bike racing bookended the Miler with a stop from the Tour of America’s Dairyland bike race series, the largest of its kind in the U.S. Meanwhile, food trucks and our Schlitz Park Café stationed themselves nearby to keep all the racers, spectators and tenants fed and hydrated.
