How do I get to the event?

We’re in Wisconsin, it’s summertime aka construction season. We’re excited to see you at the event so you may want to factor in some extra time to get to Hart Park on July 14th due to construction. State Street in Wauwatosa is under construction right at Hart Park and is only allowing westbound traffic currently. See construction and parking post.

Day of activities

Don’t forget to stick around after you walk or run for more fun! Visit local rescue booths and their adoptable dogs, vendors, the agility course and our FOM lure course. Make sure to stock up on our newest Friends of MADACC gear! Grab a beer from Leff’s Lucky Town and some food from Bel Air Cantina!

Thank You For Making WRW2017 A Huge Success!

Walk Run Wag 2017 is in the books, and we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you to all of our participants, sponsors, volunteers and supporters. Your contributions go directly to help the Milwaukee metro area’s neediest animals.

Race results are available here.

Thanks again. See you at WRW2018!

Today Is The Day To Walk, Run and Wag!

WRW2017 is here! And the weather is forecast to be absolutely perfect for the race and post-race activities. Join us and help support Milwaukee’s neediest animals!

Register in person beginning at 7 a.m. at Hart Park. Runners planning to register today, 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 registration for walkers, because your walk is not timed.

(Participants registering today 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 today.)

Registered in advance online or by mail? You can pick up your race materials beginning at 7 a.m. in the registration area. Look for the “packet pickup” sign.

Need a race map? Download the WRW2017 Race Map today to plan your day. We recommend parking on Honey Creek Parkway east of 70th Street (there is a lot of parking on Honey Creek east of 68th).

Race time is 9 a.m. Participants running without dogs will start at that time; runners with 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:

We wish all our runners a personal best today, and ALL of our participants an amazing day! A special thanks to all of our sponsors, our volunteers and every single supporter (this means you!) for helping to make WRW2017 a success. See you at Hart Park!

Join Us Saturday for WRW2017!

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.)
