Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon 5K 2021



The Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon 5K is complementary to the Lakefront Marathon.  This is an excellent way for those who are friends, family, spectators and sponsors to get involved with the festivities and excitement.  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 5K, now in it's fifth year promises to be the best yet!
This is a timed event (one-hour cutoff) that is PERFECT for people of all abilities!  Whether you are looking for a personal best or looking for a great family friendly activity while waiting to cheer on those running the marathon, we want you to help us celebrate Marathon Sunday!  The 5k route begins at the finish line of the Lakefront Marathon, takes a loop around Lakeshore State Park, a quick jaunt through Veteran's Park and heads back into the Summerfest grounds where you will hear 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.

Perks include: Race shirt, food/beverages and yes, finisher medals!!!  Children under 10 are FREE but must be registered to get the race perks.  

We will even have some awards!
