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. 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 through Ashwaubenon 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 east through Ashwaubenon before heading over the Mason St. Bridge to Allouez and enjoying some miles on the Fox River Trail. After crossing back over the Fox River, they will head back to Lambeau Field to take a lap around the Frozen Tundra.
The \Cellcom Green Bay course are USATF certified and the full marathon is a Boston Marathon Qualifier.
