Marquette Marathon, Half Marathon, 5K, and Kids Run. Labor Day Weekend. Marathon and Half are on September 5, 2020

Registration opens January 2020.

Note:  Most of our website has not yet been updated with information specific to the 2020 event.

Check out the 2019 Results and Photos.

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.
