After the cancelation of the 2020 event due to the pandemic, the group organizing the Wisconsin Marathon is again hosting an in-person race on May 1, 2021. The distances will be limited to the half marathon and 5k distances only, due to modifications to the event timeline. 

The race will start and end near the Kenosha Public Museum (5500 First Ave) and Civil War Museum (5400 First Ave) and run through the streets of Kenosha and Pleasant Prairie. A detailed course map can be found on the event website. There will be rolling road closures beginning at 6:30 a.m. until just after Noon. Race organizers have worked hard to put together a timeline that is safe for the runners and area residents without adding in additional, long traffic delays. 

“We are so excited to bring this fun, positive, healthy event back to an in-person format. We’re working closely with the City of Kenosha and the Kenosha County Health Department to make sure that we’re following best practices to produce a safe event for participants, volunteers and the community at large,” said Tracy Collings, Owner of T-Race Productions.  

Modifications to the 2021 race include: 

  • Runners to start in waves of no more than 60 participants every 3 minutes 
  • Reduced participant density - runners to arrive no more than 10 minutes before scheduled start time 
  • Separate start and finish lines 
  • Masks to be worn at start/finish area - can be removed while running on course 
  • “Elite-style” Aid Stations - Runners to take from table or fill their own container 
  • No gear check will be available 
  • No post-race party - refreshments “grab & go” style; pre-bagged for easy distribution 

For those who are interested in participating, yet not ready to arrive in-person, the event is offering a virtual option. Participants can choose any distance and will receive their race t-shirt and medal via mail.
