On-course/finish line entertainment

The Lakefront Marathon is very pleased to make your experience even more fun and entertaining, along the course and of course at our great “after-party”.  We have local and national acts that are prepared to help you along the 26.2 mile journey and all they ask for in return is your enthusiastic smiles, cheers or high air fist pumps.  Of course they will be around afterwards to give you a chance to say hello and learn more about their artistry.  Here are some brief bios to help you get to know them and help spread the word.
