The Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon is Wisconsin's largest marathon distance event in the state of Wisconsin and one of the largest in the U.S.  This event draws participants for all over the Country and now you and your family can take part in the day's festivities.  The Badgerland Striders are pleased to produce this event that will take place just before the first marathon runners cross the finish.  

This is a timed event that is PERFECT for the whole family!  Whether you are an elite athlete looking for a Personal Best or a walker with a stroller, we want you to help us celebrate "Marathon Sunday".  The 5k route starts in Veterans Park, takes a loop around the gorgeous Lakeshore Park island and heads back into Veterans Park where you will take a loop around the lagoon and listen to the cheering crowds as you finish through the same chute as the LFM runners will do minutes after you are done.

Come on down to start the day with a little exercise, support all the kids who will be participating in the finale of the "I Can 26.2 It!" youth running program and of course, cheer on the runners who are completing a 26.2 mile day. All the excitement of the marathon will be yours for only a 5K.
