The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon and Half Marathon courses are considered to be fast and flat, by race industry comparisons. The courses finish with a “tailgate” themed party in the Lambeau Field parking lot! The half marathon and marathon both start in front of Lambeau Field an hour apart. For … MORE

    This had been my first marathon ever back in 2009 and running through Lambeau was definitely worth it. The course has changed since then, but the course offers a lot of variety….riverside, residential, industrial….but running through the tunnel at the end onto the field makes every mile worth it!! Tailgate party at finish line!! I have done several times now so the excitement is not the same, but a great event and expo and a must do for any Packer Backers.

    I was really disappointed with the decision to cancel the full. I woke up to a text saying that due to flooding on the course, the marathon was canceled but I had the option of running the full. The “flooding” was near my hotel which was near the end of the race. There was maybe 50 meters of water on the trail by the river when I went out for my warm up before the half. In my opinion, runners could have been directed around the water. When I got back to my hotel, the flooding had receded and wouldn’t have impacted the race. I was looking forward to racing Green Bay to add it as another state on my 50 state marathon quest. The half was run through neighborhoods and a part went around Lambeau Field. Running through the stadium was neat, but the rest of the course wasn’t particularly scenic or memorable. I know that it is a tough decision to cancel any race, but in my opinion, the organizers made the wrong call. As a final kick-in-the-pants, when I finished the half, the announcer mispronounced my name which summed up my race experience.

    So sorry this happened to you Kenny, since I know you were looking forward to running another strong marathon after Boston. I'm also surprised that no alternate routes were in place for the marathon, but hopefully this spurs the organizers to put one in place before next year's race. And by the way, how do you mispronounce "Ames"...? 🤔 Thanks for your review, and hope you're already looking forward to the next marathon! LESS

    If your a NFL fan this race is for you! You get to run around the old Packer stadium across the river and Lambeau field with going down where the players walk in from. The race was easy and ran with the 5:30 pace group because I had a right sprained ankle from previous weeks. It was perfect for me which was a run/walk “Run two minutes and 30 seconds; then walk 40 seconds.” The 2 leaders were amazing and stayed with us the whole time. Go Pack Go!

    Packet pick up was fairly smooth although I had to ask around to find exactly where the packets were – the expo was on the main level but packets were on the 3rd level. I didn’t see signs but there were enough other runners around to ask and find my way. The shuttle for my hotel was disappointing. I and another runner were waiting by the front of the Bay Motel as instructed on the shuttle info, wondering where the shuttle was, only to see it pull off of a side street (not visible from the front of the hotel) and leave us behind. Luckily we weren’t too far from the start (a little over a mile), but we had to walk to the start line. Not a good way to start the day! More specific info is needed on the shuttle pick up info (street name would have been helpful!) The staging area at the start was well organized, space was available for warm up, Lambeau field atrium was open for restrooms and stretching and corral start was nice even with a smaller field. Least crowded start I’ve ever experienced which I appreciate. The race itself I found to be scenically a bit boring – many residential neighborhoods. No fault of the race but there was a strong N wind along the river stretch for 7 straight miles which took a lot out of me. What I did not like were all of the turns (there were so many, some of which were tight and one right after another) and several places where you had to cross curbs with no ramps. Also a few railroad crossings. I guess the flatness of the course makes up for these things though.

    Overall Rating: Ok, it was just a marathon.

    Course Difficulty: A few small hills, and a couple of rises for bridges, but a fairly easy course.

    Course Scenery: Neighborhoods and industrial areas…blah.

    Race Production: It was fine-ish. I had to pay and extra $50 for race day picket pickup and couldn’t get anyone to give any real details. I arrived at 5am race morning to try and sort it out, but no one was around. At 6am (race started at 7) a random volunteer happened to walk by and those of us waiting sweet talked her into helping us…who knows if the person who was actually supposed to be there was going to show up…dumb.

    Anyway, on the course, support was good, volunteers were kind, and if you’re a Packer’s fan (which I’m really not), you get to run a lap around Lambeau Field.

    Race Swag: Good. I didn’t love the medal (it was the third piece of a three part), but it’s fine.

    My Performance: Really sore after Fargo the day before, so I just took it easy…still had a 9 hour drive and back to work at 6:30 Monday morning.

    Just know that this is a race seems to be about making money, not making runners love it. I needed a check mark by WI and this one fit the schedule. All said and done this very average race cost me $165 for entry, with no extras included…a far cry from the outstanding $35 race in Ohio.

    If you’re schedule allows and you’re only running one in WI, I would look elsewhere.

    Bummer you couldn't fit Marquette or Milwaukee into your schedule, Keith; I ran my own Wisconsin race at the Ice Age Trail 50 Miler this time last year. Green Bay is one of those supposed meccas that all sports fans should visit, and at least now I know not to bother scheduling my eventual visit during the marathon. And sorry to hear your knee's still acting up – hopefully after Traverse City this weekend you can give your knee another two weeks to recover before Hatfield McCoy, which I really enjoyed last year. Something to look forward to... and hoping it's not crazy hot again! LESS

    This was my first road marathon. The course was pretty flat and scenic. Starting off at Lambeau was pretty awesome. Finishing at Lambeau…I felt like it was a cluster. The finish was probably what formed most of my opinions on this race. Obviously the finish is one of the last things I remember. Too many people trying to file through the tunnel, out on to the field, and back out the tunnel. Walkers from the half didn’t move over for the runner of the full. I will do this again in hopes of changing my view, and also for the 2nd of a series of 3 medals. Being in Lambeau was definitely a rush though! Race shirts were mediocre. They offer a nice fit but gold print on a maroon shirt doesn’t work well. You can’t read anything on it.
