The L.L.Bean Flannel 5K – Brookfield kicks off at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, October 13th with packet pickup in the L.L.Bean store located at The Corners of Brookfield Mall 20200 Union St, Brookfield, WI 53045, which is only 12 miles from Milwaukee! Runners will register and get their numbers and very cool flannel T-shirt at the L.L. Bean store, then take a free bus shuttle to the start line at Eble Park Ice Arena one mile away.
Once they’ve completed the course, runners and spectators will take a bus back to the L.L. Bean store for the after-race party. Proceeds from the race will be shared with a local Boosters club.
This race is limited to 600 runners, so sign up ASAP to guarantee your spot!
The race starts in the Eble Park Ice Arena parking lot at 9:00 AM. The course follows North Janacek Road to Briar Ridge and Timberline. Mile one is gently rolling uphill with an elevation gain of only 50 feet. A little after one mile you will travel back onto Briar Ridge Drive which has a very 1/10th mile short but manageable uphill section, immediately followed by a nice downhill. The next ¾ mile is basically easy and flat. You will climb again on Mary lane but it is only a 50 foot uphill net gain till you get back to Briar Ridge drive and a gradual downhill back to the Eble Park Ice Arena finish.
We’ll have pizza, bananas, and drinks for you, but as if that wasn’t awesome enough, we’ll also be giving away L.L.Bean gift certificates (ranging from $25 to $100) to randomly-selected runners! All runners will receive a 20% off L.L. Bean discount coupon.
