Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon

Registration for the 2014 marathon is now closed!

Join runners from all over the Midwest on October 5th, 2014 at 7:30 am for the 34th annual Lakefront Marathon and find out for yourself why "The Best Times Really Are in Milwaukee"

The 2014 Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon will be held on Oct. 5th, 2014 at 7:30 a.m.

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. We hope to receive surveys from about 1400 people, so your answers are important to us. Read more about the survey.

All marathon participants must pick up their packets at the expo.

The expo is being held at the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward (631 E Chicago) on Saturday, October 4, from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Free parking is available at the Italian Community Center. There is NO race day packet pickup.

Runner packets will be in alphabetical order. Make sure that the packet you pick up is your packet. Double check the city, state and division on the label on the packet. You can also pass the chip over the scanner at "Chip Check" to make sure that you were given the correct chip. (NOTE: The chip is on the back of your race bib.)

Everyone must provide a photo ID to pick up their packet.  If you can't pick up your packet, we allow you to have someone else pick it up for you. You must fill out a Packet Pickup Authorization form. The form requires a copy of your photo ID or driver's license as well as your race number. The individual picking up the packet must bring the authorization form to the expo along with a copy of their own photo ID.  Both the copy of the photo ID of the runner and the copy of the photo ID of the person picking up the packet will be destroyed after the race.
