Hank Aaron State Trail 5K
The Run/Walk Route takes you through beautiful Three Bridges Park crossing the Menomonee River, through restored prairie and provides a dramatic view of Miller Park in the home stretch. This route is steeped in history and located along Milwaukee's former rail and industrial corridor. The transformation of this area over the past 20 years is worth visiting over and over again. Come out to support the great cause and enjoy the restored prairie and river views along this beautiful route. Stick around to enjoy the live band, burgers, rootbeer floats, silent auction, and prizes galore! Arguably, one of Milwaukee's best events all summer long! The 5k / 3.1-mile route is USATF Certified and professionally chip timed.
Your race proceeds support all major initiatives of The Friends of Hank Aaron State Trail, including:
- Sending 125 kids to Bike Adventure Camp each summer
- Organizing Stew Crews that keep the trails clean from Spring through Fall
- Art along the trail such as our current project, the Milwaukee Road Monument
