The 16th Annual Milwaukee River Challenge will splash into town again this Saturday, September 17, 2016 with racing along the Menomonee and Milwaukee Rivers with more than 900 participants. The 3-mile Challenge starts at 25th and Canal Streets on the Menomonee River and proceeds east to the junction with the Milwaukee River, where crews will navigate a 90 degree angle turn as they headed north toward the finish line at Schlitz Park, just below Pleasant Street. Spectators can enjoye the race from more than a dozen bridges that dot the course and offer spectators intimate views of the racing and blade work.
