Storm the Bastille

Run through the streets of Downtown Milwaukee with 5,000 of your closest friends! Runners and walkers kick off Bastille Days with the annual BMO Harris Bank Storm the Bastille 5K run/walk, in memory of the 18th century attack on the Bastille prison in Paris. The 5-K run and 2-mile walk will take place on opening night of the festival, Thursday, July 11th at 9pm. This year's 5K run/walk will begin on Jefferson & Wells. The course will lead participants through the scenic streets of downtown Milwaukee & the Historic Third Ward.

I will be volunteering for this event. I know it's only a 5K, but I think it would be a fun time. Registration is open online until June 28th at noon, otherwise you can register in person. Please see the following link for details.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
