    Can’t or don’t want to get your packet at the Expo? Take advantage of our race day pick up. For a convenience fee of $30, your packet will be waiting for you at the start line. This fee only applies to runners who are interested in picking up their materials on Sunday morning instead of the Expo. 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.

    • Race day packet pick up will be available from 6:30 am to 7:15 am.
    • Participants must have paid the $25 convenience fee in advance (PRIOR TO Saturday, October 1, 2021).  A mandatory $40 fee applies if you want to pick up your bib on race day and did not pay the $30 fee PRIOR to 10/1.
    • 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 where you may retrieve it after your run. Runners are encouraged not to put valuables in the bag (cellphones, keys, wallets, etc.).
