About The Discover Whitewater Series

The Discover Whitewater Series, a Half Marathon, 5K, and Fit Kid Shuffle (Kid’s Run) is held annually in Whitewater, Wisconsin every September. The race promotes the City of Whitewater and highlights its greatest features, along with encouraging a healthy lifestyle for people of all ages.

The Discover Whitewater Series race was initiated by the Greater Whitewater Committee, Inc. five years ago in September 2013. Thanks to the continued support and growing interest, the annual Discover Whitewater Series has proven to be a great success year after year. In five years, the Discover Whitewater Series has been able to distribute over $131,000 to five local organizations in efforts to build a stronger community. This would not have been possible without all the participants and volunteers of the race!

In addition to this challenging course and a well-organized event, the Discover Whitewater Series offers exclusive perks to all those involved. All participants receive and have access to:
*Finisher’s medal
*Shirt
*Free pancake breakfast provided by the Whitewater Breakfast Club on race day
*Free day pass to the Whitewater Aquatic Center and discounted day pass prices

Top overall Half Marathon finishers receive a purse prize (please visit our “Awards” page), and age group awards for both the Half Marathon and 5K receive a customized drinking glass.

The Discover Whitewater Series had an extremely successful event on September 23, 2018, they were able to celebrate that success on Thursday, October 18, 2018 with a banquet! The DWS team would like to thank all of the charity partners, sponsors and volunteers for attending the banquet.

The DWS is a nonprofit organization that gives its proceeds to five Whitewater charity partners. This year the donation to each charity partner was $5,500 for a total of $27,500; in six years the DWS has donated a total of $158,500.

The five charity partners include: Working for Whitewater’s Wellness, Bethel House, Whitewater Unified School District, Whitewater LEADS and J-Hawk Aquatic Club.

September 22, 2019 is the set date for next year’s race. The DWS would not be a success without all of the hard work and determination from the volunteers, sponsors, charity partners and team leaders. Thank you to all for making the 2018 race amazing!
