For 2021, spectators will not be allowed near the start or finish line areas. We ask that spectators stay away from the park area in front of the museums (where the start is located) and away from the walking path (where the finish line is located) and instead spread out along the streets and in downtown. For the safety of everyone in the area, masks and social distancing is recommended for all spectators.
Our out-and-back style course offers ample opportunities for friends, fans, and family to see the runners along the course.
Some of the most ideal, easily accessible, on-course viewing locations will be 54th Street and 6th Ave (Mile .5, 9.5, and 12.5), 75th Street and 7th Ave (Mile 2), and 44th Street and Kennedy Drive (Mile 10.5 and 12).
See COURSE DESCRIPTION for details.
You can track your runner by looking up when they crossed some of the timing mats along the course by entering their name or bib number at this link- Link for 2021 runner tracking will be posted on our homepage closer to race morning.
A course map with timelines of street closures can be found HERE. This map will have info on the times each section of the course will have runners on them so you can avoid using the streets at those times.
How do I watch the race?
Different people watch races in different ways, but here are some handy tips for getting around the course and seeing different parts of the race.
Tip 1: Downtown
You can see your runner pass by a couple times by standing in the middle of downtown Kenosha. At 54th and 6th, you can actually see your runner go by three times.
Tip 2: North side
The north side of the course covers mile 9 thru 13. If you want to venture outside of the downtown area, you can drive or bike up to the Kennedy Drive. Driving: Take Sheridan Rd north to 44th and made a right. You can park on 44th Ave and then walk east to Kennedy Drive, along the lake, where the runners will be running north and south. Cyclists can take 8th Street north and then cut over using 44th or Washington (right turn from 8th).
Tip 3: South side/ Pleasant Prairie
The south side of the course in Pleasant Prairie is not recommended for most spectators due to the lack of cross streets and the little amount of time runners will spend in that area. If you do wish to get down that way, biking is the most recommended mode of transportation. Utilize 5th going south, which will take you as far as 79th. If you would like to go to the furthest south point, utilizing 17th and taking it all the way to 91st would be pretty much the only way to get there safely.
