Team Claws Victorious!
It was the second exciting year of the Claws vs. Paws Challenge at the 33rd annual running of the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon in early October. The friendly competition between CUW and UW-Milwaukee takes the times of all runners participating from each university and averages them to determine a winner.
While UWM's Team Paws celebrated a victory in the inaugural year of the challenge, CUW clawed its way to the top in this year's race. CUW's 28 runners finished with an average time of 4:09:39, while the 53 runners from UWM finished with an average time of 4:11:07. Congratulations to Team Claws!
Consider joining us next year as part of the CUW Alumni Team. Whether you run the marathon alongside team Claws or shout encouragement along the way, we would love to see CUW Alumni join us for this great community event. For more information about getting involved, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Next year's challenge is set for October 5th, 2014.
We'd love to see you at next year's Lakefront Marathon and all CUW Alumni events between now and then!
See you soon!
