IMPORTANT: Please pay special attention to whether you are a FULL Marathon Relay or HALF marathon Relay Participant.

The race course will not be open for the FULL marathon relay after the 7:15AM start.
Bibs and swag for all relay team members will be packaged together; only one person will be able to pick up the team’s materials. Click here to learn more.

A big thank you to the residents of the Grand Cities, especially those who live along the Wild Hog Race course. You’re what makes this marathon memorable for participants, particularly those who travel from far and wide to be here. The support of the community has positively impacted the economy by over $250,000 last year and it’s what enables us to donate $30,000 each year to local charities that benefit the local youth.
To help minimize any inconvenience of our short-term road closures, we have provided a map of the course to show exactly when your neighborhood will be busy. If you’re looking to support the runners during the race, consider setting up a cheer zone in your front yard with family and friends. Thank you again for your support of this fantastic event and we look forward to seeing you on race day, it’s sure to be one of the best yet!

You’ll be inspired by all the runners giving it their best on race day, and they’ll really appreciate you too. Continue reading “Join the Hugo’s Cheer Zone – You Could be a Winner!”
