The Wisconsin Marathon announced today that Southern Lakes Credit Union will sponsor the 2019 event on Saturday, May 4, 2019.
Southern Lakes Credit Union has been a local financial services in Kenosha since 1935, and is honored to promote wellness in the community and help provide a quality event to kick off spring in the area, Southern Lakes President Tim Barthel says.
“When I volunteered at the Wisconsin Marathon in 2018 I knew this was an event that the Credit Union needed to support. We are excited to take part in an event that showcases Kenosha’s beautiful lake front while getting people active in our community,” Barthel adds.
The Wisconsin Marathon takes place at Celebration Place at Harbor Park in Kenosha, and offers full marathon, half marathon and 5k distances to participants.
“It is great to have a local company like the Southern Lakes Credit Union on board as a sponsor of the event,” says Wisconsin Marathon Race Director, Jonathan Cain. “2019’s race will be our eleventh year and the race is a great way to show off the City of Kenosha and the Village of Pleasant Prairie to both locals and out-of-towners. Our race has a reputation for being very friendly and welcoming and I think that is a reflection of the area itself. Seeing the runners traverse the streets can inspire anyone and we try to put on an event that makes folks in southeastern Wisconsin proud. That is why Southern Lakes Credit Union, being a welcoming, community business themselves, makes such an ideal partner for our event.”
Registration for the 2019 event is open for all distances.
