WHITEWATER– January 6, 2023 The Discover Whitewater Series (DWS): Half Marathon, Half Marathon Team Event, 5k, and W3 Fit Kid Shuffle is excited to announce that registration is now open for its 11th annual race. The upcoming Discover Whitewater Series is set to be held on September 17th, 2023.
Since its establishment in 2013, the DWS has hosted 10 successful races, raising $254,500 for local charities. The DWS partners with the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, the Whitewater Unified School District, and the City of Whitewater to make this race a premium community event. Once again, the DWS plans to host a fun and safe event the entire community can enjoy.
This year, the DWS will be maintaining fan-favorite events from years past such as: the W3 Fit Kid Shuffle, Kids Korral childcare, and Post Race Celebration at 841 Brewhouse. In addition, the DWS will be featuring a new Half Marathon Team Race event where teams of four (all men, all women, or co-ed teams of two men and two women) can compete for the best combined half marathon finishing time.
“I’m excited for this year’s event, bringing the team competition to the Half Marathon adds a new dimension to the race we haven’t had in the past,” said DWS Executive Director Jeff Knight. “I believe the team element to the race will make it stronger than ever before. It’s wonderful to see how the entire community comes together to host this annual event in September.”
The 11th annual DWS this September will be bigger and better than ever before with the new team race option for the Half Marathon and much more. DWS is offering an early bird special through the end of the month where registration rates are at their lowest of the year. The DWS team looks forward to another successful race, and is excited to see all the runners come together once again!
