NEW for 2017-Race Day Packet Pick Up

New for 2017, pick up your packet on race morning at Grafton High School!  If you can’t make the expo on Saturday, September 30 to pick up your race packet or have someone else pick it up for you, then you can pre-order this new option for a $25 convenience fee.  Your packet will be waiting for you at the start line on race morning.  This fee only applies to runners who are interested in picking up their materials on Sunday morning in Grafton.  Runners are encouraged to attend the expo where they will find Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon merchandise, many local and national vendors, and have a chance to talk to pace team members.

  • Already registered and want to add this option?  Sign up here!
  • Race day packet pick up will be available from 6:30am-7:15am.
  • Participants must have paid the $25 convenience fee in advance (by Wednesday, September 27, 2017).
  • No refunds will be issued if you decide to pick up your packet at the expo.

All participants will be given an official Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon gear bag at packet pick up. Use the bag to transport your personal items to the start line. Runners are encouraged not to put valuables in the bag (cellphones, keys, wallets, etc.). Personal bags and backpacks are not allowed on the shuttle buses. Runners who purchased the race day packet pick up option and plan to ride the bus to Grafton can obtain a Lakefront Marathon gear bag from a volunteer at the shuttle bus stop.  Extra bags will also be available at the start line.

Official Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon merchandise will be available at the expo on Saturday and at the finish area on Sunday. Multiple local and national vendors will be on site as well.
