About The Rockin’ Brews Marathon
The Rockin’ Brews Marathon in Monona, Wisconsin on 2 September 2023 is an event you won’t want to miss. This scenic half marathon takes runners through the picturesque city of Monona and its surrounding areas.
The 13.1 mile race course begins at the beautiful Lake Wingra and follows a route that allows for stunning views of the lake’s shoreline, as well as glimpses of nearby downtown Madison’s skyline. The terrain varies from flat stretches along winding roads to gradual hills with elevation gains that offer an enjoyable challenge for all levels of runner. You’ll also get to explore some lesser-known parks and trails in Monona during your run, providing plenty of opportunities to take in nature’s beauty while crossing the finish line!
September weather in Wisconsin can be unpredictable but typically temperatures are mild in the daytime and cooler at night, making this a great time of year to run outdoors without extreme heat or cold getting in your way. Additionally, you will likely find yourself surrounded by cheering fans who come out every year to support their local athletes—so don’t forget your cowbells!
One unique feature about this race is its post-race celebration which includes live entertainment, food trucks serving up delicious eats from around town; craft beer stations offering samples from local brewers; running vendors selling gear; kids activities like face painting; plus much more! All these features make it easy for runners (and spectators!) alike to have fun following their accomplishment no matter what distance they choose—whether it’s a full 26 miles or just one lap around Lake Wingra before heading home again satisfied with their performance!
Overall, if you’re looking for a great mid-year running experience then look no further than the Rockin’ Brews Marathon on 2 September 2023 – definitely worth signing up for if you haven’t already done so! It promises spectacular scenery combined with friendly competition and post-race festivities that will keep everyone entertained long after they’ve crossed over that finish line!
