1. Tunnel Trails "Big Apple" Full Marathon

The "Big Apple" full marathon will begin at 7:00 a.m. at the start/finish line at the Elroy City Park (Schultz Park). The runners will run a short distance (100 yards or so) before leaving the park and head north into Elroy on the "400 Trail." In Elroy, the runners will pass by the Elroy Commons and then run up 2nd Main Street, which includes a run over a scenic "covered bridge", and then enter the Omaha Trail on the north edge of Elroy. After about 7 miles, the runners will pass through a beautiful old railroad tunnel. The tunnel was built in 1876 and is 875 feet long!  The runners will pass through Hustler and continue north for another two miles and then turn around and begin their return trip, following the exact same path back to the finish line.

Our marathon course is now certified and its USATF certification # is WI13031DM.  Our certificate and course map with
