2017 Community First Fox Cities Marathon Presented by Miron Construction
What Brings You to the Start Line?

It's a pretty simple question, but there's a lot of different answers that we hear every day.  What brings you to the Start Line?
  • Is it the friendly volunteers that are here to help you every step of the way?
  • Is it camaraderie that develops out on the course among participants that makes you feel like your part of a team?
  • Is it the spectators cheering for you by name at the point (or points :)) in the race when you need it the most?
  • Is it the feeling of accomplishment when you finish and a volunteer puts a Finisher medal around your neck?
  • Is it the idea of running for or in memory of a loved one that gets you through the race?
No matter what your reason for participating or what brings you to the Start Line, we want to be the race that helps you accomplish whatever it is you didn't think was possible.  We're here to help (2,300+ of the best volunteers you'll ever meet), we've got all the great amenities (finisher medals, technical running shirts, a health & wellness expo, course support and finish line food) and a promise you won't be disappointed!  

Don't miss the opportunity to be part of something unforgettable; bring a friend & come experience it for yourself - we promise you won't be disappointed.

Summer Training Runs

In conjunction with the PaceSetters Running Club and Run Away Shoes, the Marathon & Half Marathon Summer Training Runs continue every Saturday morning at 7:00 a.m.  And the best part about them is EVERY TRAINING RUN IS COMPLETELY FREE!

Each week the organized training runs start and finish at Run Away Shoes in Appleton; distances vary based on your goal race but everyone will have access to knowledgeable Fox Cities Marathon and PaceSetters Running Club staff to ask questions or get helpful pointers.  Starting next week (June 17) ThedaCare athletic trainers will also be available for questions or concerns on any bumps or bruises you might be experiencing.

Additionally,  Marathon and Half Marathon Training Guides  are also provided compliments of ThedaCare.  Whether your fast or slow, a running veteran or a beginner - everyone needs a training plan to keep them focused and accountable!  The ThedaCare Training Guides are a must get! They are available for download or for pick-up at the Fox Cities Marathon office.
