Beginning and finishing inside Riverside Park in downtown La Crosse, the courses follow the famous Oktoberfest Maple Leaf Parade route. The Half Marathon goes all the way to Nelson Park on French Island. They are flat, fast courses with an abundance of enthusiastic spectators cheering you on!
Bathrooms, showers, and parking will all be available at the La Crosse Area Family YMCA, 1140 Main Street, which is 3/4 of a mile from the starting point. Downtown parking is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Rest facilities will be available along the race course.
