Race Day

Gear Check

A secure gear check will be available at the race site, near the Start/ Finish area. Please try to attach the gear check tag from your bib to your bag before dropping it off.

The Wisconsin Marathon is not responsible for any lost or damaged items. Please do not include items of high value in your gear check bag.


All Cheese Corral

This is a start area for any registered runner willing to don the dairy that makes Wisconsin famous. There is no time requirement or pre-registration required. If you would like to participate, all you have to do is arrive on race morning wearing some kind of cheese-themed apparel.

Runner Tracking

We do not have traditional tracking at the race, but we do have split mats along the course at a couple locations. When you cross these mats, your split times will be automatically uploaded to this site where your family and friends can see your progress. Link for 2020 runner track will be posted here closer to race morning.  


Post Race Party

The Wisconsin Marathon’s famous Beer and Brat Post-race Party is once again back for 2020! All marathon, half marathon, and 5k runners will receive a ticket for a free brat and beer after the race.*

Our post-race party is open to the public! Bring your family. Bring your friends. Tell the spectators watching from their front lawns. Everyone is welcome to enjoy a day of music and the excitement of the finish line!

There is no food or drink available for sale at the party. We encourage all spectators to visit the downtown restaurants and bars. Many of them have specials available on race day. Be sure to grab a race program for additional coupons.

* We realize that not everyone would like a brat or beer after running. We have a limited number of veggie dogs available, too, but don’t worry, we have plenty of other great food for you to enjoy after the race, including fruit and other goodies. We always wanted to put on a race with a fun atmosphere afterward, so even if you don’t want brats or beer, please hang around and enjoy the music and camaraderie.
