About The Run the Trailbreaker
The Trailbreaker is not just any half marathon; it is Waukesha’s beloved running event that has captured the hearts of runners since its inception in 1993. As a fixture in the city’s calendar, it has grown to encompass not only a Half-Marathon but also a Marathon, 5K Run, and 2 Mile Walk. This event truly offers something for everyone who is passionate about running and supporting their community.
What sets the Trailbreaker apart is its commitment to making Waukesha a better place to live, work, and play. Organized and hosted by the Park Foundation of Waukesha, Inc. (PFW Inc.), this annual event serves as a fundraiser for city parks, trails, recreation programs, and the urban forest. With over $200,000 already raised and reinvested into the community, you can have the satisfaction of knowing that your participation directly contributes to the improvement of Waukesha’s quality of life.
Waukesha isn’t just a scenic backdrop for this race; it is a city full of fascinating history and beautiful sights. From its vibrant downtown to its lush parks and trails, Waukesha offers a perfect blend of urban conveniences and natural beauty. And if you’re worried about the weather, fret not! April in Waukesha welcomes mild temperatures and blossoming springtime landscapes, creating an ideal running atmosphere.
So lace up your shoes, join the fun, and be a part of something bigger. By running the Trailbreaker, you are not only challenging yourself physically but also making a meaningful impact on the community. Start training, gather some friends, and get ready to experience the camaraderie and support that only a community-driven race can provide. We can’t wait to see you and celebrate your accomplishments at the finish line!
