Event FAQs

How do I register? You can register online at our secure site. Click on Registration and follow the directions. There are no refunds, cancellations, or deferrals to future years. We are unable to issue refunds due to any reason, including illness, injury, weather or schedule conflicts regardless of when the registration was initiated. Registration for the marathon, relay’s, half marathon, and 5K will close when each of those events reach capacity (see below).

Why is there a capacity limit (cap) on the events? The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon faces both logistical and materials constraints, necessitating the existence of capacity limits on these events. Significant production lead times on several of the benefits the distance runners receive such as gear check bags, t-shirts and medals are taken into consideration in establishing a fixed field limit. The capacities exist to ensure that all participants take part in a safe and enjoyable experience.
