Marathon, Half Marathon, Relay
May 30, 2010
Elkhart Lake, WI

The festival is a collection of running, cycling, inline skating and mountain biking’s finest endurance events located in the heart the Midwest. The concept of the festival is to bring endurance athletes of many different sports together in one place where they can experience a unique camaraderie, the essence of sport, and the feeling of true accomplishment… crossing the finish line. Come to the festival and experience GREAT events, multisport camaraderie, breathtaking countryside and nightly entertainment. Experience more than just another race.

The Great Midwest Marathon and Half Marathon is a truly unique and exciting experience that finishers can be proud of. The challenging course starts in celebratory fashion in the heart of downtown Elkhart Lake before leading participants on the journey ahead. The certified course tours from town to town, through Wisconsin’s beautiful country side, past historic sites, and over hills reminiscent of Boston. The half marathon is a point to point run starting at the Wade House historical site and finishing in the same location as the marathon and other festival events making for an action packed experience.

Other endurance events include:
  • inline marathon
  • 12 hour mountain bike challenge
  • Tour of Elkhart Lake cycling race
