About the Trailbreaker
The Trailbreaker is Waukesha’s home grown running event and has been held annually since 1993. This Waukesha tradition initially consisted of a Marathon, Half-Marathon, and 5K Run/Walk. The Trailbreaker originally was the brainchild of three running colleagues (amigos). Since 2009, the Park Foundation of Waukesha, Inc. (PFW Inc.), has organized and hosted this annual event as a fundraiser for the enhancement of city parks, trails, recreation programs and the urban forest.
Over $200,000 has been generated and re-invested with the Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department to “make Waukesha a better place to live, work and play”. The PFW Inc. is a 501©3 organization that utilizes funds raised to promote “Community Quality of Life”. All staff are unpaid volunteers. Please consider making a donation!
This event provides distances for all runners! Come join the fun and support our local parks and community!
Please note, we will not be able to exchange shirt sizes and shirts will not be sold. Shirts are unisex and tend to run large.
