Didn’t make the May 1st deadline to get our Early Bird Discount when registering for Walk Run Wag 2015? Not a problem! Participating in WRW 2015 is still one of the most affordable options for fun that you’ll find in the Milwaukee area — and the money raised goes to help animals in the greatest need!
As of midnight today, registration fees are:
Adult, 5k run, with or without dog: $25
Adult, 1- or 2-mile walk, with or without dog: $20
Children, run or walk, with or without dog: STILL FREE! (You can’t get cheaper than free!)
“Sleep In” option for those who are too busy, out of town or just plain not morning people…register and we’ll mail you a shirt, no need to show up at the event (though you’ll miss out on tons of fun): $20
Now, let’s put those fees into perspective. $25 could buy you:
- About one-quarter of a general admission, uncovered lawn seat at the Rolling Stones’ June 23rd Marcus Amphitheater gig at Summerfest.
- Half of a loge infield seat to watch the Brewers take on the Diamondbacks on WRW day, May 30th.
- Less than half of a single day ticket to Six Flags Great America in Gurnee.
And, we might add, none of those activities comes with a free t-shirt, or helps Milwaukee’s animals. And we’re pretty sure not even the Stones are going to offer you dock diving, lure coursing, agility, face painting and all the other goodies we’ve got planned for you. (And, by the way, while you get a free t-shirt for participating in Walk Run Wag, you don’t have to do the run or walk to join us May 30th at Hart Park for all the other fun activities, including vendors, food trucks and adoptables from local rescues. Some after-race activities do require a modest additional fee.)
