The Marquette Marathon and Half Marathon run on the scenic Ishpeming-to-Negaunee-to-Marquette route, which has received rave reviews from our runners. Both the full and half courses are not only breathtakingly beautiful but they are FAST! As you’ll see in the course maps, there’s a lot of downhill. Plentiful aid stations … MORE

    Great downhill event that is partially on hard packed trail. Other than an uphill finish and one uphill at about mile 21 this is all downhill or small rolling hills. Morning packet pickup for those staying a short distance away is convenient. Blues festival that weekend so town is busy, but a lot to do! Leads to pricey rooms however. Friendly race that finishes downtown. Only drawback is that it is always held Labor Day weekend. A great small town race.

    This smaller marathon was first rate when it came to volunteers and course. Lots of Northern Mich University athletes out to support the runners and plenty of aid and on-course support. 2019 had ideal weather for a late summer race with cool at the start and bluebird skies throughout.

    The course is mostly down hill or flat. There are a few rollers but hardly noticeable. Much of the course is ran on a trail through wooded area, which provides natural beauty. Nice t-shirt and medal. Exceptional food selection at finish line.
