The 12th Annual Milwaukee River Challenge splashed into town this September 15th with its lagest paricipation and viewing ever. Over
750 participants and approximately170 boats tested their stamina and precision on the Milwaukee and Menomonee rivers. The single
leg 3 mile Challenge will began at 25th & Canal streets on the Menomonee River at 9:30 am and proceeded east to the junction with
the Milwaukee River, and turn north to Schlitz Park just below Pleasant Street. More than a dozen bridges on the Milwaukee and
rivers allowed spectators intimate views of the racing bladework. Outdoor seating at the many riverside restaurants, as well
as Schlitz Park, the Milwaukee RiverWalk and the Harley-Davidson Museum grounds provided spectacular vantage points. The
Milwaukee River Challenge is the most accessible rowing race for spectators in the U.S. No where else are spectators as close to the
shells when they are racing.
There are no entry fees for participants in this race.
