Elite Runners

Have what it takes to compete for overall awards?  Come run the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon and challenge yourself and other runners.  If you can show that you have recently run a 2:40:00 (male) or 3:10:00 (female) marathon time, contact Kyle Fraser for details of how to gain FREE entry into the Lakefront Marathon with VIP perks.  We’d love to host you.  We have increased our prize money and don’t forget about our $5,000 bonus for the first male and/or first female that finishes with a U.S. Olympic Trials marathon qualifying time.  Our first place female missed it by only 18 seconds last year.  Can you do it?

Race Day Packet Pick-Up Option

If you can’t make the expo on Saturday, October 5th to pick up your race packet or have someone else pick it up for you, then you can pre-order this option for a $25 convenience fee.  Your packet will be waiting for you at the start line on race morning.  You can select this option when you register for the marathon.  You must pick up your bib at Expo or pay the additional fee for race day PRIOR to the expo.  Those that do neither will need to pay $30 on race day to get their bib (NO EXCEPIONS).

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.
