Safety &
Security Measures


Please know that bags and purses will be scanned prior to entering the gates at Henry Mair Festival Grounds. This is a policy of our host venue and will be conducted by their professionals. The Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon staff and volunteers will also need to adhere to these safety measures. Please plan ahead as there may be a slight delay in the entry to the finish line spectator area. 

To ensure the safety of all participants:

  • Only official Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon gear bags will be allowed to take personal items on the shuttle buses and to drop off items on the bag drop truck. Bags will be supplied at packet pick up, at shuttle bus loading and again at the start line if needed.

  • The event and security staff reserve the right to conduct a search of any bag at any time in conjunction with marathon-related events and locations.

  • Spectators are not allowed into the secured runner finish area.
