Marquette Marathon, Half, and 5K: September 1, 2018

Get Ready to Run!

Online registration for the 9th Annual Marquette Marathon and Half Marathon is open. Register, circle September 1 on your calendar today, and start training!

We’ll also have old school paper (well, PDF) registration forms available soon. If you want to be notified when they’re posted, please e-mail the race director.

Our marathon and half marathon courses both have significant elevation drops, visit multiple U.P. cities, and travel through gorgeous wooded scenery on the Iron Ore Heritage Trail. And of course, the marathon is a Boston Qualifier.



We like to think our marathon and half marathon are run on one of the most beautiful courses in the country . . . and did we mention the elevation drops? The 5K course is shorter but still has scenery that only Marquette can offer.
