Marathon Build-Up Schedule

The Badgerland Striders Lakefront Marathon build-up runs take place on Saturday or Sunday mornings at various Milwaukee County Parks.

Running specialists from Aurora Sports Health are on-site during each Build-up Run – typically staying until all runners have returned.  Their physical therapists and licensed athletic trainers are available to check out any aches, pains or soreness and provide treatment recommendations.  A big thank you to Doc Gordon for being accessible to runners for questions and evaluations.

Water stops and finish area refreshments are provided (donations are appreciated).  Volunteers are needed each week to help with the water stops.  To sign up for water stops go to http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e044fa4af22a0fe3-lfmbuild.   or   Contact Build-Up Run Director Jeff Weiss for more information.
