Race series dares runners to participate in four to earn extra bling

The "Marathons of Wisconsin" Challenge is back for a third year, with a lineup of races that stretches from northern to southern Wisconsin. Returning races include the Wisconsin Marathon (May 7 in Kenosha), the Paavo Nurmi Marathon (Aug. 13 in Hurley), the Community First Fox Cities Marathon (Sept. 18 in Appleton),  and the PNC Milwaukee Running Festival (Nov. 6 in Milwaukee).

Runners who complete all four events in 2016 will receive a special Marathons of Wisconsin medal. There is no fee to join.

In order to have the ability to say that they truly have run Wisconsin, runners will need to complete either a full or half marathon in all four events. Each runner must complete at least one full marathon in one of the following races:
