2018 Course Corner - Exploring Miles 12-16
A monthly feature focusing on the Marathon
& Half Marathon courses
After exiting Sunset Park in Kimberly, you have almost 3 miles of flat or downhill running! This section of the course features the halfway point (along Newberry St), the first GU Energy Gel Station, a newly reconstructed Telulah Park and a trek along the 'Appleton Flats' on the Newberry Trail, an area that is in the process of being redeveloped by the City of Appleton. The Newberry Trail also runs adjacent to the Lawrence University athletic facilities - including the outdoor track and Alexander Gymnasium. The last portion (about a mile) of this section takes you away from the river...and back up the last real climb in the final 10+ miles to the finish line.
