Half marathon begins at 8:00am and 5k begins at 8:30am. The challenging, but scenic course begins at Marathon Park and is run on paved roads. The first half of the route crosses the McCleary Bridge and then continues on to a 670 ft. climb up to the top of Rib Mountain, the highest point in Marathon County. The course then heads back down the mountain to the finish back at Marathon Park. The 5K Walk/Run follows the Half Marathon course onto the McCleary Bridge.
