It’s almost time to get our wag on at Walk Run Wag 2017 and we hope to see you there. Advance registration for the event has now closed, but you can still register in person on July 8, the day of the event, beginning at 7 a.m. at Hart Park. Some other important information for everyone participating:
Early Packet Pickup is Friday, July 7th, 4-7 p.m. at MADACC, 3839 W. Burnham St., West Milwaukee, for anyone who has registered in advance by mail or online. We strongly suggest you bring a copy of your registration confirmation email, either printed or on your smartphone. The packets are alphabetically organized but occasionally a participant’s packet ends up misfiled. This has happened a handful of times, but we don’t want it to happen to you! Having the registration confirmation in hand makes it much easier to troubleshoot.
Runners planning to register July 8 before the 5k start, please note: Day-of registration for all 5k participants, with or without dogs, closes at 8:45 a.m. We must cut off all 5k registration at that time to ensure we can get your information to the timing company to record your run accurately. Planning on walking? Don’t worry, there is no cut-off for day-of registration for walkers, because your walk is not timed.
(Participants registering the day of the event will receive a WRW2017 shirt only until our supply runs out. We cannot guarantee your preferred size, or that you will get a shirt, if you register on the day of the event.)

Race time is 9 a.m. Participants running without dogs will start at that time; runners without dogs and all walkers will start in separate waves immediately afterward as decided by the race director, so plan ahead and be prepared to be within earshot of the start line at 9 a.m. regardless of whether you’re running or walking.
And don’t forget all the post-race activities planned, including:
- Lure coursing with Friends of MADACC
- Agility course by Agility Possibilities
- Allie Faith of 103.7 KISS FM and appearances by some very special guests
- Adorable adoptable dogs from area rescues
- Tasty treats for purchase from Funky Fresh Spring Rolls, Little Havana Express Food Truck, and Punjabi Accent MKE
- Beer for purchase from Leff’s Lucky Town
- Plenty of vendors!
WRW2017 is rain or shine. See you there!
