Run Back to School

2022 Run Back to School registration is open!

 

Participant at Run Back to School

MPS and Milwaukee Recreation celebrate the 15th edition of the Run Back to School!

The entire community is welcome to join us this August to kick off the 2022-23 school year with this 5K race/1.5-mile walk through Washington Park. Join us to show support our young people, teachers, and MPS staff! Proceeds from the event are used to support youth recreation, wellness, and sports programs throughout the district.

Watch the video below to see highlights from the 2021 race.

 

Schools can receive up to $1,000 in grants by forming an RBTS team!

Make sure you rally your team for the Run Back to School race and apply for a grant for your school!

Not only will you help kick off the 2022-23 school year with hundreds of local MPS supporters, school communities with at least 25 registered participants are eligible for a $500 grant to support a sport or wellness need in their school! The school with the most registered participants is eligible for a $1,000 grant to support a sport or wellness need in their school! Anyone from the community can join a school team. After the race, school teams who met the minimum participant requirement will need to fill out a form that states how the funds will be used in order to receive the grant.

In the past, schools have used the grant funds for: 

  • new gym and sports equipment
  • new uniforms
  • sports registration fees
  • rental of the Wacky Wheels Skate Van for its students

Nominate a team captain for your school and start your team today! (To sign up for a team, make sure you specify your school during the registration process after you add the race to your cart.)
