The Fleet Feet Aquathon Series is comprised of five Thursday night races held at Menomonee Park throughout the summer. Each event consists of a 1000 meter swim followed by a 5000 meter run. Perfect for mid-week training with a bonus of chip timing and series prizes for the top 3 finishers in each age group!
When and Where:
Menomonee Park - Once a month (two in August) on Thursday evenings from May through August - see dates above. *$4 daily park pass required*
In the case of inclement weather, the Race Director will make the race time decision to delay or cancel the event. We will make every effort to hold the race on the scheduled date. If necessary, the distances of the swim and/or run may be modified based on conditions and safety. In the case of cancelation we will make every effort possible to reschedule the event at a later date (subject to park availability). If an event is canceled, please check this website for rescheduling information. If severe weather is predicted we will announce cancelation of the event on this website, the Fleet Feet website, and if possible, via email.
If circumstances require event cancelation, no refunds will be given.

The 1000 meter swim will take place in Quarry Lake at Menomonee Park and consist of a two-loop rectangular course marked by buoys. The transition area will be located to the southeast of the beach and the beach house and the start to the 5k will be near the entrance to the beach parking lot. The 5k course will follow Park Dr through the park to the turn around and circle back to the beach.
Scoring will be based on finish placing. 1st place = 100 pts, 2nd place = 99 pts, etc. Fifteenth place would be 85 pts. If you do not compete in an event, zero points will be awarded. The final series score will be based on the best 4 finishes out of the 5 events.
