You are Invited to Participate in a Research Study Conducted by Dr. John Pick-Jacobs and Dr. Craig Young.
The purpose of the study is to determine what training methods may contribute to the successful completion of a marathon. We compare goal finish times to actual finishing times. Once we know how close participants came to reaching their goal, we can analyze the specific training factors that may have led to marathon success. Your participation will include filling out a survey. Please download the survey, fill it out and bring it to the expo. We hope to receive surveys from about 1400 people, so your answers are important to us. Read more about the survey.
Lakefront Marathon merchandise is available in our store.
We have jackets, in-training shirts, sleeveless shirts, hoodies, caps and magnets.
We will continue our popular e-mail newsletter this year. We will again use the newsletter to provide important updates and information as race weekend approaches. If you enter the race, you are automatically subscribed – if you hit the “un-subscribe” link, you will not receive important updates. If you would like to subscribe in advance of registering or just want information about our race, use this link to subscribe to the newletter.
