The Land Regatta Run/Walk serves as the Be3's annual fundraising opportunity to support the local community. The project selection is completed in collaboration with the City of Port Washington and/or other local civic organizations in order to identify a community improvement opportunity which aligns with the vision for Port Washington's future.
We will go back to our beginning with the 2017 event by dedicating proceeds to the Coal Dock Park safety railing. Coal Dock Park was designed to serve as a space to hold festivals and for people to walk, run, and play while taking in the breathtaking views of the Port Washington harbor. In order to provide a safe environment for children and adults alike, a railing on the north side of the park is to be installed. Be3 will help defray costs associated with the railing installation by donating all proceeds raised from this year’s Land Regatta Run/Walk event to this project. It is estimated that the railing requires $200k to install with half of the necessary monies already raised.
The Land Regatta Run/Walk is a family-friendly chip-timed event designed to appeal to all abilities with two course distances available: Both routes will exit Upper Lake Park through the north entrance and incorporate the Spinnaker residential area. The 5k route will travel downtown via the Interurban Trail before returning to the Upper Lake Park via the south entrance. The 2 mile course will remain in "the bluff" area and return to the finish line through the north park entrance. View a detailed map here.
Both courses will be timed by Absolute Race Timing of West Bend and top placing participants by age group will be recognized during the award ceremony scheduled for 11:00am. All advance registrants aged 14 & up will receive a t-shirt with registration. Youth aged 13 & under may participate free (no t-shirt included).
Following the main event will be a kids only race hosted by Be3 Juniors! Youth up to age 10 will be invited to participate in a fun race around the Upper Lake Park loop! All kid participant will receive a ribbon.
