The weekend of events will be held Oct. 30-Nov. 1. The Marathon and Half Marathon races will take place on Sunday, Nov. 1 and will start at 7am. The 5k race will also be held on Nov. 1 and will start at 8am.

Participants will receive a long-sleeve tech shirt and finishers of the Marathon and Half Marathon will get medals. There will also be a post-race Finish Line Festival with food and drinks.

Although the official race course has yet to be finalized by the City of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County Parks, the preliminary map shows a course that celebrates many of Milwaukee’s neighborhoods and landmarks.
