The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon and Half Marathon courses are considered to be fast and flat, by race industry comparisons. The distance events finish in Downtown Green Bay’s Leicht Park with a “tailgate” themed party on the shores of the Fox River. The half marathon and marathon both start in downtown Green Bay, 30 minutes apart.
For the half marathon, the course features tree-lined streets, traveling west through Green Bay and the village of Ashwaubenon. A quick lap through Lambeau Field at mile 9 and back to downtown Green Bay for the 13.1 mile course.
In contrast, the marathoners head west to Lambeau Field at mile 4.5, take a lap around the Frozen Tundra and head south to the city of De Pere. After our marathoners cross over the Fox River, it’s more tree-lined streets and eventually the final 8 mile stretch along the Fox River Trail to the finish.
