Join Team CMT members for Brewers Mini Marathon


Cheryl Monnat and Robert Kearny at Rock & Sole Half Marathon

Join Team CMT members Robert Kearney, Cheryl Monnat and Chris Wodke at the Brewers mini marathon on Sept 22nd. Hoping other Team CMT members are planning to be there as well. This is a good warm up if you are doing a fall marathon like Robert and Cheryl (Dublin).

Here are the details

What:  Brewers Mini Marathon (Half Marathon)
Location:  start and finish at Miller park with a lap around the field warning track.
Date: September 22, 2012
Time: 7:00

The race proceeds go to MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer).

There is a key check at the start so you will not have to carry your keys on the course and risk losing them (you know who you are).

You get a finisher medal, ticket to a future Brewers game, a goodie bag, shirt and admission to the post run tailgate party.  Come meet fellow Team CMT members. I bet the racing sausages will be there.  I love them, but they beat me in the 5K sausage race.

Here is the training plan I will be using, so if you have ever been thinking about running longer distance this would be a great race.

Race Day!

Happy to provide coaching or help if you have any questions. I will be biking and swimming on the rest days since I am also in triathlon season. If you are doing the event let me know so we can meet before the race for pictures and after to celebrate our accomplishment!

This is the same training plan I will be using as I join Virginia Team CMT members in November for the Richmond Sun Trust Half Marathon. Will be seeing Ruth Cook, Richard Cook, Allison Moore, Kim Farren and Courtney Hollett.
