Elite Athlete Program


The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon offers a $20,000 prize purse that is 5 deep in the male and female marathon and 5 deep in the male and female half marathon. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS. Due to budgetary considerations, we no longer offer prize money in the Masters category.

To apply for the program, you must complete an elite athlete online application prior to the process closing. Applicants need to apply for a specific event, since your past finish times will determine if you are qualified. You will be notified if you have been accepted for our elite field within 10 business days.  If you are not accepted into the program, you may still register and you will still be eligible for prize money awards.

Athletes who are accepted into our elite field receive a complimentary entry and local transportation. Elite athletes are also considered for Friday and Saturday hotel room accommodations on a first come, first served basis. Please note: For budgetary reasons, elite athletes will be asked to share a hotel room with another elite athlete.  The deadline to request a hotel room is April 15, 2017.  For further information please call Elite Athlete Coordinator Liz Van Asten at (920) 639-5499 or email her via
