Wisconsin Marathon

May 2, 2015

(847) 675-0200 x210

Come join us in Kenosha for a marathon, half marathon, or 5k run and make your dreams come true. Bring your friends along and you can participate in our new Team Challenge, too!

Sweet Dreams Are Made Of Cheese!

Picture yourself at a race. Picture yourself running along Lake Michigan on a beautiful May day. Picture yourself talking and laughing with a couple people you met along the course. Picture yourself crossing the finish line with your hands held high because you accomplished your goal!

It isn’t a dream. It is the Wisconsin Marathon!

Our race offers everything you can dream of, plus our famous Big Cheese Medal and a brat and beer at our Post Race Party!

You don’t have to travel the world or the seven seas to find the race of your dreams. You only have to come as far as the Wisconsin Marathon!
