(Race starts at 8:00 a.m.; Cost: $45 or $55 after March 17th)

The Marathon course covers approximately four miles of city streets and sidewalks, 15 miles of improved trails (including the Glacial Drumlin Trail), and 7 miles of the Ice Age Trail. Miles 10 through 16 are extremely rugged. Except for the Ice Age Trail, the trail is subject to only gentle grades. Marathon turn-around is the top of the 40' Lapham Peak tower, the highest point in Waukesha county, with spectacular views of the surrounding like country. The Marathon has a 5.5-hour cut-off. Net climb on the way out is 438 feet; the net drop on the way back is 438 feet. Aid stations will be located at intervals between 3 and 4 miles, with a bag drop at the third aid station (behind Saxe's Restaurant). An annual or daily Wisconsin State Park sticker is needed to park at the Lapham Peak Tower. Crew access availability at aid stations.
