The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon and Half Marathon courses are considered to fast and flat, by race industry comparisons. The courses finish with a “tailgate” themed party in the Lambeau Field parking lot! The half marathon and marathon start together in front of Lambeau Field. The initial miles pass along tree-lined streets in west Green Bay and the village of Ashwaubenon. After the half marathoners split off towards the finish at Lambeau Field, the marathoners head to the village of De Pere and cross their new bridge 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 before crossing the Walnut Street bridge. It then continues through more Green Bay neighborhoods before returning to Lambeau Field. Come enjoy the fun!
