                                          The Lakefront Discovery Run(s)

                                                                                         It's gonna be a "graveyard smash"!  

               You know why?  Because this year were gonna have a..."Monster Mash"


HOLD IT...WHAT?  Run(S)????  That's right, you read it right!  This year we are adding a 5-mile route to our historic 15K event for those runners not quite up to the challenge of 9.3 miles but want to participate in Milwaukee's best value in running entertainment! 

15K starts at 9am

5 mile starts at 9:45 am

FAIR WARNING:  We sell out every year with just a 15K so sign up NOW because there is a 1200 runner TOTAL capacity.

Why do the Discovery Runs?
* Beautiful course(s)
* Tons of crazy, fun-loving and costumed runners
* "THE" shirts... you know you want one.
* THE "after party" that is the envy of all other runs combined! And this year...we're spinning some tunes for everyone to dance to! 

What's NEW this year?
1. Want to partake in the fun but were a little afraid of the 15K distance?  Well, were adding a 5-Miler this year! 

2. Great beer from the geniuses at Lakefront Brewery! (and yes, you can have more than 2--sorry other runs!)

3.  Free soda and water

4.  All under a "big top party tent" so bring your dance shoes!

The 15K course will remain largely the same but will start and finish in Lake Park, Milwaukee.  The 5 mile course will be on the same course with a slight out-and-back.
