Course Information

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 the shadow of Lambeau Field on Mike McCarthy Way between Holmgren Way and Oneida St. with a “tailgate” themed party in the Festival Zone. The half marathon, marathon, relays and Cellcom 5K all start on Morris Ave. between Holmgren Way and Oneida St. near the hallowed halls of Lambeau Field.

For the half marathon, the course features tree-lined streets, traveling south through Ashwaubenon, DePere and Green Bay before a quick lap through Lambeau Field near the end and then on to the finish line for the 13.1 mile course.

The marathoners head south to DePere, and Ledgeview before heading north through Allouez and Green Bay. Finally crossing the Fox River, they will head to Ashwaubenon and Lambeau Field to take a lap around the Frozen Tundra.

Medical Stations

All medical support for the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon is provided by our official medical sponsor Prevea Health.

Along the route:
There will be extensive medical support along the half-marathon and full-marathon routes. These stations will have tents marked with large red medical flags with a white cross. The stations are staffed by licensed athletic trainers, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, and nurses, providing general first aid needs. If a medical emergency arises, the local 911 system is activated.

Finish line medical tent:
The main medical tent at the finish line is fully staffed with health care professionals from many disciplines with the capability to handle any general first aid needs or medical emergencies. Ambulances are also onsite to provide emergency transportation if needed.

We are working on the 2020 viewing locations and will have detailed information in spring of 2020.

Although there are a lot of great viewing locations on the course, we’ve designated eight spectator spots where we’ll be taking things up a notch in terms of fun and entertainment.
