Walk Wisconsin offers a full marathon, a half marathon and a quarter marathon. I signed up for the full and a friend signed up for the half.
We picked up our packets on Friday night, and were given a great recommendation for supper. Our packets included our shirt, arm band (no bib due to no timing), a water bottle, and a bag.
On Saturday morning I had to be at the start by 7 AM. When I arrived I realized people had already started. They had a rolling start, because this event was not timed. Everyone was super friendly and helpful.
The aid stations included a variety of fruit, granola, snack mix, brownies, cookies, crackers, and cheese. There was even a popsicle station. The path was mulched, but it wasn't sand soft. It felt very good on my feet and knees.
The half marathon started at the half way point of the marathon. I stopped there and stretched and waited for my friend. The half way aid station had pizza!!! There were lots of chairs for stretching!
There were signs with music trivia along the way, (to keep my mind off the long walk).
The last three miles were on the road, and my feet were hurting!
We finished by the lake, back where we started. We crossed the stage to receive our medal, and then went to the tent for some food!
I highly recommend Walk Wisconsin. Everyone was super nice! The aid stations were stocked. The time limit was 11 hours for the full marathon.
