The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon and Half Marathon courses are considered to be fast and flat, by race industry comparisons. The courses finish with a “tailgate” themed party in Downtown Green Bay! The half marathon and marathon both start in Downtown Green Bay. For the half marathon, the course consists of tree-lined streets in west Green Bay and the village of Ashwaubenon. In contrast, the marathoners head to the village of De Pere and cross over the Fox River before a scenic, six mile stretch along the Fox River Trail. The asphalt trail runs along the river from DePere, through Allouez, to downtown Green Bay. It then continues through more urban Green Bay neighborhoods before returning to Downtown Green Bay. Come enjoy the fun!
