Each year, the River Challenge Weekend is a time to come together, enjoy our Milwaukee River and Riverwalk, and to participate in some wonderful events.

  • The River Celebration is a special evening of recognizing this wonderful asset to our community and those that make our enjoyment of the river possible.
  • The Run/Walk is a great time to get out and enjoy our city while supporting a great cause.
  • The highlight of the weekend, the Milwaukee River Challenge, brings more than 900 participants together for a 3-mile Challenge up the Milwaukee River. Spectators will also enjoy the race and can view it from the Riverwalk and the more than dozen bridges that dot the course.

Visit the Milwaukee River Challenge website for details on all the events and how you can participate.
