The race starts on 2nd and Freshwater in the heart of Milwaukee's Walkers Point neighborhood and goes east into the Third Ward before going past the home of the world's largest music festival – the Summerfest Grounds. Right after that is one of the city's most recognizable landmarks – the Milwaukee Art Museum – then a quick jog through Veterans Park along the Lake Michigan lakefront.
Once runners leave the park they head north on Lincoln Memorial Drive for about one-third of a mile before turning around and coming back south on Lincoln Memorial Drive all the way back the way they came from the start. The finish line is the same as the start. The route is USATF certified (Certificate # WI17031DM – Effective 10/6/17-12/31/2027). COURSE MAP Aid Stations
