Green Lake Chamber, 550 Mill Street Downtown Green Lake, WI
Clear your calendars and plan to test your legs in one of Wisconsin’s most scenic running routes: The Green Lake Area “13dot1” Half Marathon and 5K Fun Run.
Talk about eye-catching scenery! This half marathon route takes runners through the City of Green Lake and west along wooded lanes and the breathtaking shoreline. A good portion of the race route includes a tour through the lovely Green Lake Conference Center, with its many historic structures and extensive stone walls dating back to the Victor and Jessie Lawson era in the early 1900s. Emerald green manicured golf courses and magnificent lake homes are part of the eye candy in this race.
The 5K route (3.1 miles) also includes beautiful views of the Lakeshore. Runners and walkers head west along the lake past Hattie Sherwood Park and beyond, before returning to the finish line at Deacon Mills Park. A free Kids Race for children ages 10 and under takes place near the finish at 10:00 a.m. Great music, food, and an awards ceremony follow.
The Half Marathon (13.1 miles) starts at 8:15 a.m. followed by the 5K Run/Walk at 8:30 a.m. Crowds of enthusiastic spectators line the streets for plenty of cheering and cowbell action as their favorite runners head out. Woot-woot!
Make it your summer goal and start training today. DO the DOT—the 13dot1!
