The 13th Annual Milwaukee River Challenge will splash into town again this September 21st, with racing along the Menomonee and Milwaukee
Rivers from 9am to 2:00pm. The 3-mile Challenge will start at 25th and Canal Streets on the Menomonee River and proceed east to the
junction with the Milwaukee River, where crews will navigate a 90 degree angle turn as they head north toward the finish line at Schlitz
Park, just below Pleasant Street.
More than a dozen bridges dot the course and offer spectators intimate views of the racing and blade work. The Riverwalk lining the
shores of the Milwaukee River, along with Pere Marquette Park, the Harley-Davidson Museum grounds, the staging area at Schlitz Park
and the fabulous outdoor seating at the many riverside restaurants, also provide spectacular vantage points, making the River Challenge
the most accessible rowing race in the US. Nowhere else can spectators get as close to the shells when they are racing. With 140 boats
and nearly 750 athletes taking part in the competition, an exciting day on the river is guaranteed!
There are no entry fees for
participants in this race.
