This race should have been next weekend and I am still disappointed that it’s not happening this year. I ran it the last 3 years and I loved it. 😞
Do you have a date for 2018 yet?
Hey there, does anybody know the name of the vendor/brand of sunglasses at the running expo/packet pick up
Excellent half marathon. Your warm weather precautions were first rate. Congrats on a well run event.
Congratulations to everyone on finishing Rock 'n Sole! We'd love for you to check out to share more about your experience this past weekend. Help other runners decide the best races to run & find new races to add to your schedule!
The gentleman who played the saxophone on Lincoln memorial drive was awesome!! Thank you!
Great run this year! The volunteers did a great job of supporting, motivating, and handing out drinks! Thankful the clocks didn't get stopped this year. Definitely be back next year!
Fantastic event this morning. The course support was phenomenal - I was so thankful for those wet towels around mile 9-10 and the misting stations. And the volunteers were great. My only complaint is they ran out of chocolate milk at the finish line. ☹️
I will almost certainly be back next year. I love this event!
How many people have registered? Either total or just quarter marathon? Thanks! Looking forward to tomorrow!!

Thank you to sponsors Milwaukee Admirals, Master Z's, Marquette University and Saz's Hospitality Group. And thanks to Kids Run to Read co-chairs Marquette Golden Eagles Steve "Coach Wojo" Wojciechowski and his wife Lindsay.


It's a bottle-of-Aquafina-after-the-race kind of day. Or a carton of KempsCows chocolate milk.


We've passed the 2-hour mark, with plenty of medals still to award. Congratulations to all our finishers!


We're seeing plenty of smiles out on the course today, especially at the finish line. You rock!
