Run for Free in Milwaukee Marathon
Become an Urban Milwaukee member and get marathon tickets worth up to $79!
The Milwaukee Marathon is returning on Saturday, April 6th for another fun day of running through and by some of the best sights Milwaukee has to offer. This year’s race has a new date and new ownership committed to making it the premier running event in the region. Thousands of runners will span three different distances, with all races starting and finishing at the Bucks’ brand-new Live Block entertainment complex, and winding through town to take in Lake Park, the lakefront, Downtown, the West Side, Washington Park and many great urban areas.
This year’s marathon will include ample parking and an awesome after-party to celebrate your run. In addition to the improved location and experience, registration for the Milwaukee Marathon includes a lot of great stuff. Runners will get a Milwaukee Marathon quarter-zip fleece, a high-quality technical running shirt, commemorative medal, and if you’re 21+, a beer during the after-party. And if you’re an Urban Milwaukee member, it’s all free: you can run a full marathon or a half marathon, and receive all these extras, on us.
Yes, Urban Milwaukee has partnered with the Milwaukee Marathon this year to provide free admission while supplies last. Sign up to become a UM member and you’ll receive the chance to reserve your spot for the half marathon, a $69 value, or the full marathon, a $79 value.
