See Dane Run at the PNC Milwaukee Running Festival

“Everyone should get behind the Mile. It’s an unbelievable event for people to get out and cheer, and to get out on the streets of Milwaukee. I’m really excited about running the Mile in Milwaukee.”

From Milwaukee Running Festival

Dane Rauschenberg has run on the mountain-ringed sand flats near Bonneville Raceway in Utah this year, and he’s immersed himself in the French and Creole influences of New Orleans by running in the Crescent City Classic. He’s marveled at breath-taking geological wonders, running on the beach at the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia, in the ‘Not Since Moses’ event. He’s taken in the Nordic wonders of Iceland in the Reykjavik Marathon.

Rauschenberg is seeing the world one step at a time, and his journey of discovery will bring him to the streets of Milwaukee for the PNC Milwaukee Running Festival, Oct. 30-Nov. 1.

“I try to find interesting locales,” said Rauschenberg, who ran 52 marathons in 52 weeks in 2006. “I’ve found that there’s great running all over the country, and one of the ways I’ve tried to see this country, and I think that the best way to do that, is on foot. I’ve been fortunate enough to spend some time in Milwaukee, and found it to be an absolutely wonderful city for the sport of running. It’s very welcoming.”
