Heatbreaker Indoor Half Marathon Race Entry Giveaway

Don't like racing in the summer heat? Try the inaugural Heatbreaker Half Marathon & Relay (HERE).  It is Wisconsin's only summer indoor half marathon and will take place on Saturday, July 28 at the Pettit National Ice Center in Milwaukee.  It is the sister event to the wildly popular Icebreaker Indoor Marathon & Half Marathon, which draws a sell-out field to the Pettit Center every January.

I was one of the lucky runners that ran the Icebreaker Indoor Half Marathon this past January and it was one fabulous experience!!  I will definitely be goin gback.  People always ask me what it was like to run so many laps around the Pettit National Ice Center ... and I say it was awesome.  The laps didn't bother me at all.  You had dozens of opportunities for water, great race support, rest rooms, it was cool and the course was flat.  Awesome.

About the Heatbreaker Indoor Half Marathon:
There will be four heats with a capacity of 125 runners in each.  The heats will begin at 7 a.m., 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.  Runners can sign up for whichever heat they would like.  Following the half marathons there will be a half marathon relay starting at 7 p.m. for teams of 2 to 4 runners.

The 7 a.m. half marathon will be the competitive heat and will have a $1,000 purse paid out to the top three male and female finishers.  We also have special challenges for runners who want to compete in multiple heats.  There is the Two Alarm Challenge for two of the heats, the Three Alarm Challenge for three heats and the Inferno for those daring enough to run in all four half marathon heats.

It's been a very hot spring and summer for distance racing so we are hoping to take advantage of that with an indoor race on what is notoriously the hottest weekend of the summer.  The temperature inside the Pettit Center is always a cool 55 degrees!
