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
*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.

2018 t-shirts are in!

This year’s race is dedicated to the sesquicentennial for the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater!

Our graphic designer, Alexandria Johnson, has created our shirts to represent that. We decided to put the 150th logo on the sleeve of every shirt and all the lettering will be purple.

We also have the half marathon and 5K in a purple dry fit shirt!

Check out the awesome shirt below and register for the 2018 DWS to get yours on race day!
