Why do a Trail Marathon?

The past Oshkosh Half Marathon will adopt a full marathon in 2015 with the recent completion Tribal Heritage Trail that connects the Wiouwash State Recreational Trail east and west over Hwy 41. Organizers have always had a vision for a full marathon. The problem was creating a 26.2 mile marathon course within a city that is divided by a railroad that is used excessively by a train system. 

The Tribal Heritage Trail will offer runners 11 kiosk overlooks of the Lake Butte Des Mort’s causeway. If they choose to stop at any of these 11 points they can also read about the use of this waterway of Native American Tribes with information on the natural history of those tribes.

According to Ben West, Race Director, “We are excited to give runners an opportunity to experience the serenity and beauty of the Wiouwash Trail and the trail's softer surface gives your body a break, too.  It is so conducive for a marathon distance of 26.2 miles.”  This date's average temperature is 52 degrees.
