The Lakefront Discovery Run features two race distances: a 15k and a 5k. Each distance can be run, walked, skipped, or hopped. There will be age group awards as well as awards for overall winners. More importantly, there will be an award for ‘Best Costume’ as voted on by the event volunteers (please don’t bribe the volunteers). The run begins at Veterans Park and provides a delightful tour of Milwaukee’s lakefront. There will be candy laden aid stations on the course to fuel your run and satisfy your sweet tooth. Each runner AND volunteer will receive an event t-shirt, traditional post-race snacks, enough candy to make a dentist cringe and the best part? Oh, we’ve got a rocking post-race party planned with free beer! Come out and celebrate a successful season of Strider running!
Please review the Badgerland Striders Race Policies and Guidelines.
