Celebrating 20 years

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 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.

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.

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