2013 Famous Racing Sausage Run/Walk has sold out

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- For the fifth year in a row, the annual Brewers Community Foundation 5K Famous Racing Sausages™ Run/Walk has sold out, this time a full month before it is scheduled to occur. 4,000 runners and walkers have claimed all available slots in the 15th annual race, which will take place on Saturday, July 20, 2013 at 8:00 am for runners and 8:15 am for walkers. Fans began registering a month before Opening Day and the last slots were filled yesterday.

The unique feature of this event is that participants actually get to test their skills against the Klement’s Famous Racing SausagesTM, who also run the course. The run will begin and end at the Klement’s Sausage Haus where the Brat, Hot Dog, Chorizo, Italian Sausage and Polish Sausage join the crowd on the course. The route also makes its way around the warning track of Miller Park. Brewers coaching assistant/digital media coordinator Joe Crawford will be the honorary starter for this year’s event.

In addition to enjoying a course that makes its way through the warning track of Miller Park, participants in the Run/Walk receive a commemorative t-shirt, a Terrace Reserved ticket voucher good for one of eight Brewers 2013 home games, a bottle of Aquafina water, a Klement’s hot dog and a beer for participants 21 and older. The overall top male finisher and the overall top female finisher also receive a year’s worth of Klement’s meat products.

Sponsors of this year’s 5K Famous Racing Sausages Run/Walk are Brewers.com, Klement’s, 94.5 The Lake FM, MillerCoors, Olympus Group, Pepsi, Prime Time Timing, SportService, and 2-Story Creative. All proceeds of the event will help Brewers Community Foundation extend financial support to non-profits that provide quality programming in the areas of health, education, recreation and basic needs.
