After your picturesque finish on the shores of Lake Michigan, items will be available to start your recovery off right.  Food and beverages will include brats, burgers, ice cream, water, gatorade, and of course, beer.  The UW-Manitowoc facilities will be available for a quick rinse or just some much needed shade. NEW THIS YEAR: UW-Manitowoc has graciously agreed to allow runners access to their locker rooms after the race. Grab a quick shower if needed after your race is finished. Make sure to pose for a post-race picture with your one-of-a-kind finisher’s medal.  Most importantly, congratulate and share stories with your fellow runners!


In the full and half marathon, awards will not only be given to the overall top female and male, but also the top 3 female and male participants in these age groups: 18-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70 plus.

Packet Pick-Up:

Each runner will receive a race packet prior to the race. That packet will include a technical short-sleeved t-shirt, a pair of FREE wigwam running socks, your race bib and disposable timing chip, and Friday and Saturday night coupons for drink and food specials at Kathie’s Stage Door Pub and The Courthouse Pub.
