The Half Marathon Walk is timed but is strictly for walkers. All walkers will receive a goody bag, Half Marathon Walk shirt and a walker’s finisher medal, unlimited beer and cider as well as any other treats that the runners receive. If you want the runner’s medal and shirt as well as an official race finish time, you need to register for the Half Marathon instead.
The Rockin Brews Marathon combines running with 2 of America’s Favorite things, Craft Beer & Music. The event is designed for groups, individuals and serious competitors. There is a Full Marathon, Half Marathon, Half Marathon Walk (timed) and Team Relays. Musicians will play at the Finish Line Festival. The Finish Line Festival will feature unlimited soda, beer (21+) and of course, live music. The course follows paved paths and tree covered streets along the shores of beautiful Lake Monona, providing cooler temperatures throughout 75% of the course. Runners will view the beautiful skyline of Madison, WI and run under the Frank LLoyd Wright Monona Terrace. Full Marathon participants will loop the same course twice which allows them to drop off at 13.1 miles if weather conditions are less than perfect or for any other reason. All participants will receive an official Rockin Brews race shirt, post-race snacks, a Goody Bag, unlimited beer & soda, a cool finisher medal and free entry into the Finish Line Festival. Participants can sample as many beers as they like, guests can purchase an unlimited sampling pass for $40 at the entrance.
