Trailbreaker Marathon/Half-Marath­on/5K

(Race starts at 8:00 a.m.; Cost: $45 or $55 after March 17th)

The Marathon course covers approximately four miles of city streets and sidewalks, 15 miles of improved trails (including the Glacial Drumlin Trail), and 7 miles of the Ice Age Trail. Miles 10 through 16 are extremely rugged. Except for the Ice Age Trail, the trail is subject to only gentle grades. Marathon turn-around is the top of the 40' Lapham Peak tower, the highest point in Waukesha county, with spectacular views of the surrounding like country. The Marathon has a 5.5-hour cut-off. Net climb on the way out is 438 feet; the net drop on the way back is 438 feet. Aid stations will be located at intervals between 3 and 4 miles, with a bag drop at the third aid station (behind Saxe's Restaurant). An annual or daily Wisconsin State Park sticker is needed to park at the Lapham Peak Tower. Crew access availability at aid stations.

Half Marathon
(Race starts at 9:30 a.m.; Cost: $35 or $45 after March 17th)

The Half Marathon course follows the initial leg of the Marathon course but has an earlier turn around. It does not include the Ice Age Trail or the Lapham Peak tower.

5K Run / Walk
(Race starts at 10:00 a.m.; Cost: $25 or $35 after March 17th)

Participants may choose between running or walking through Frame Park along the banks of the Fox River. Much of the course follows the first miles of the Marathon and Half Marathon course.

    It's my first time considering a marathon. I never run that long distance, the longest i go is 20km, and already cost me 2 hours. should i take the challenge of full marathon, or just half marathon?

    I ran the half marathon last year, very flat course [ almost like our oak Leaf trail, paved and looks similar] for the half marathon. Heard that full marathon is bit more challenging, as we have to run up the hill to the Lapham Peak tower, through ice age trail, our known trail too.....The half marathon here last year was my first ever foot race, so this race have a special memory to me...This year will do the full marathon here.
