The Badgerland Striders will kick off the outdoor racing season with their annual South Shore Half-Marathon on Saturday, April 11th. The race starts at the South Shore Pavilion at 2900 S Shore Dr in South Shore Park. The race starts at 8:30 am with registration starting at 7 am. Runners can also register by mail or online at www.badgerlandstriders.org .
I have run this race for the past several years. It is always fun and almost always very wet and cold. There is often standing water and mud on the course. Everyone seems to enjoy this race; however, even with the water, mud, wind and cold. This race also gives people a motivation to run during the winter months so they are prepared for the half-marathon in April.
