Join us as we run a beautiful marathon and half-marathon course that begins in Iron River, Wisconsin and finishes in Ashland, Wisconsin on Lake Superior’s south shore. Our course is relatively flat, easy on the knees, and the one on which you can set your PR or if you are running the marathon…qualify for Boston!!  Our fall marathon & half-marathon offers you spectacular fall colors, friendly aid stations and the best in pre-and post-race music. This promises to be a great experience for you.

It’s easy to see why the WhistleStop is the Upper Midwest’s fall classic.
