About The Discover Whitewater Series

The Discover Whitewater Series was initiated by The Greater Whitewater Committee, Inc. The inaugural Discover Whitewater Series Half Marathon, 5K, and Fit Kid Shuffle was held September 2013. Thanks to the continued support and interest, The Annual Discover Whitewater Series is a great success. In three years The Greater Whitewater Series has been able to distribute over $77,000 to five local organizations in efforts to build a stronger community. This would not have been possible without all the participants and volunteers these past three years.

In addition to a challenging course and a well-organized event, all participants receive and have access to: a finisher’s medal, shirt, drawstring tote, a free pre-race dinner provided by Chartwells, a free pancake breakfast provided by of Kiwanis on race day, one free day pass to Whitewater Aquatic Center and discounted day pass prices ($5), purse prizes for top half marathon finishers and age group awards for both the half marathon and the 5K, as well as a customized drinking glass to the top three age group finishers. There is also a free daycare service available (Kids Korral) on race day sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater College of Education and Professional Studies. Purse prize for top half marathon finishers and age group awards for both the half marathon and the 5K. Click to read more about awards and post-race events.
