Elite Runner Perks
If you've achieved an exceptionally low finish time at a marathon or half marathon in the past two years, we have a couple of perks for you! The first is a special Elite Runner Corral at the front of the pack to ensure you get a fast start right out of the gate. The second is a fully comped entry to this year's race!
Both perks have limited availability and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. If you qualify as an elite runner, please fill out this form.
Standards for both the marathon and half marathon must have been run within 18 months of the race to qualify. Athletes applying for elite complimentary entry will not be included in the Age Group results or awards. They will be categorized in the overall Elite results only. Applications must be submitted no later than 14 days prior to the event. Late entries will not be accommodated. An elite complimentary entry is non-transferable and only applies to the Half Marathon and Marathon distances. Other distances do not qualify.
If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected].

HOW TO FIND PACERS ON RACE DAY
Pace Team Leaders can be found wearing official Milwaukee Marathon “PACER” gear and holding signs indicating their pace. On race day, you can meet Pace Team Leaders in the starting corral prior to the start of the race.
FINDING YOUR PACER
There is no cost or need to pre-register for the pace team, nor is there any obligation to stay with the group you choose. You may surge ahead or drop back as you desire. Running together gives the group a collective energy and enthusiasm that supports and enhances everybody’s race experience.
All of the Pacers are experienced runners and are looking forward to helping pace you towards your race goal.
Restrooms, water stations, and medical support will be located through the course. Come back closer to the race for locations of all amenities along your run!
The After Party
The Hilton Head Marathon doesn’t end at the finish line – the fun continues with an awesome after-party in Jarvis Creek Park!
There will be music, food, drinks, and a craft beer garden! Best of all, registered runners (21+) get two beer tickets to enjoy cold Island Brand beer after their race!
