If you ever thought of running this is a good one. The course is fast and flat an the majority is along Lake Michigan. A good race if you are trying to qualify for Boston. Last year the race was run by Team CMT members Robert Kearney, Kim Petak and Cheryl Monnat.  Gary Krukar was training and was sidelined by injury so maybe he will give it another chance.  I was at the worked the finish line handing out medals and I can tell you it was way more fun than running one.
Last year this race filled up in 3 weeks so if you thought about doing a marathon in the fall in Milwaukee, get on it.
The time is (almost) NOW! We will open registration for the October 7, 2012 Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon at 12:01 AM CST on Sunday January 15. The entry fee will remain at $75 - the same as  2011.  We have increased our entry limit slightly to 3100 and hope that many of you will be back with us at our Grafton start. This will be our 32md year of helping runners to make their marathon dreams come true. We’ll be back in touch soon with more details of the 2012 race. In the meantime, you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter for late breaking news.
Please remember that the registration link for the 2012 race will not be active until 12:01 AM Sunday. Also remember that we do not allow the transfer of entries, provide refunds or allow you to defer your entry to another year.  Once you're in, YOU're IN.
Set your alarms. Tick, tock…
