Hello Striders and friends:
NEW - Introducing the first annual Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon 5K run/walk on Oct. 2 at 8:30 a.m.
It will start in front of the Milwaukee Art Museum. Take a run out and along the gorgeous Lakeshore Park island, head 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 MLFM runners will do minutes after you are done. Sign up now!
There is no Strider Marathon Build-up run this week. Instead there is the Strider Half Marathon at Estabrook Park at 8:00 a.m. The Strider Half reached its limit of 1000 runners so there will be no race day registration.
The “I Can 26.2 It!” youth running program registration is open. Info and registration is at www.youthrunning.zapevent.com
This program is designed for youth ages 6-12 and is a combination of running on their own and group opportunities. Each child receives an official "I Can 26.2 It! t-shirt (with a special new motivational design this year), a weekly mileage chart and weekly motivational e-mails. Read about the program in our new brochure.
Sign up for the Strider half marathon in August.
Register for the 36th Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon, which will be held on Oct. 2, 2016.
