Did you know the Ascension Orthopedics & Sports Medicine 5K Run/Walk Supports Local Cancer patients?

For every adult entry in the Ascension Orthopedics & Sports Medicine  5K Run/Walk, $5 will be donated to the St. Elizabeth Hospital Cancer Fund to support cancer services for area patients. Watch for ways to provide additional support before the race and on race day!  In 2017, we proudly donated nearly $5,000 from participant registrations plus on race day, 35 fleece blankets were tied by participants and spectators and donated to the St. Elizabeth Hospital Cancer Center.

The race takes place, Saturday, September 22, 2018 - 9:00 a.m.
Run, jog or walk the exciting 3.1 mile course, starting and finishing at Riverside Park in Neenah. Not only does the course feature flat terrain and residential neighborhoods, participants finish at the same location as the Sunday Marathon & Half Marathon participants. You'll experience an energy and excitement unmatched at any other 5K event!

All participants will receive their shirt at registration/packet pick-up.  Finishers will receive a FINISHER'S medal to commemorate their race participation and finish at the Ascension Orthopedics & Sports Medicine 5K Run/Walk.  Post-race refreshments will also be available to all finishers.

The Ascension Orthopedics & Sports Medicine 5K Run/Walk is also stroller and dog friendly! The little riders and furry friends do not need to be registered.

So, whether you need a warm-up for the half or full marathon or want a fun Saturday morning event with family, friends, or co-workers, we hope to see you there!

2018 Course Corner - Exploring Miles 16-20
A feature focusing on the Marathon
& Half Marathon courses 
Miles 16-20, leading up to "The Wall", feature flat terrain in the south side of Appleton and Fox Crossing. These couple of miles set you up for the remainder of the race; get through these miles and you will be able to start smelling the Finish Line! A couple of exciting and action packed water stations will be a highlight and much of these miles are through shaded residential streets - which will be welcomed at this point in the race.
