Welcome!

We invite you to join us Labor Day weekend in Marquette, Michigan for the 8th Annual Marquette Marathon and Half Marathon on September 2, 2017.  Registration opens on December 1, 2016.

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.
