The Strider Marathon Build-up runs begin and finish at the picnic area just west of the lawn bowling area and the Lake Park Pavilion, 3133 Newberry Blvd. Aurora Sports Medicine Institute provides both financial support for this program as well as staff on-site at these runs. We especially want to thank Doc Gordon for being available to runners for questions and evaluations. Click here to see the full build-up run schedule. (See the information on a second build-up run on Sundays in West Bend on the Badgerland Strider web page.)

Registration is open for the Milwaukee Lakefront “I can 26.2 it!” Kids Run.

In an effort to promote the importance of being active to the youth, the Badgerland Striders with support from Girls on the Run and the Milwaukee Police Department Endurance Club are proud to present an opportunity for kids heading into grades 3-8. This 10-week program will encourage kids to commit to a weekly mileage running plan in an effort to complete 25 miles leading up to a final 1.2 mile run with ALL the LFM Kids Run participants and crossing the official Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon finish banner to the cheers and applause of family, friends, coaches and community supporters.
