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.

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.
