Registration Open For Journey's Marathon


Registrations are open for one of the Northwoods prime spring events--Journey's Marathon which is run across portions of the Northwoods.

This is the 19th year for the event, and Eagle River Chamber of Commerce spokesperson Ashley Schwartz says the run/walk event has a distance and style to match your level of fitness...

"....with our different race options we draw all sorts of different athletic levels, from the 5K to the full marathon and the powerwalk as well. For those folks who aren't interested in the full, we do have the half..."

The full marathon...26.2 miles... is a qualifier for the Boston Marathon.  The event begins in Boulder Junction and ends in Eagle River.

Schwartz says as of today, 350 participants have signed up, but she says they anticipate more than 1,000 runners or walkers by event day on May 9.

More information is available at the Eagle  River Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau or visit the website journeysmarathon. org
