2018 Course Corner - Exploring Miles 8-12
A monthly feature focusing on the Marathon
& Half Marathon courses 

The next four miles of the course provide a challenge, but you're also rewarded with picturesque views of the Fox River in Combined Locks, a long flat section of road in Kimberly and more trails that wind through Sunset Park in Kimberly.  Don't be fooled as you near the halfway point of the course, it's important to not panic and focus on maintaining your pace; make it through the rolling hills of Combined Locks and Kimberly and you will have 3+ miles of flat, and downhill terrain to recover!

Read more about this portion of our course here so you can explore it on your next run and visit our maps page for additional details!

Please note that due to construction in the Kimberly Sunset Park area, a slight course may be needed.  We will be continually monitor the progress of the road construction between now and race weekend and provide you with any needed updates.
