Meet Ashley and Jim, two ordinary people training for their first Fox Cities Marathon. We thought it would be fun to follow them for a few months as they prepare for this intense experience. Along the way they will be sharing their stories - the highs and the lows - with the hope they inspire you, the everyday person, to get up and RUN!

Fox Cities Marathon – Course Corner #4
Jesse Drake, Race Operations Manager
The next to last edition of the ‘Course Corner’ showcases miles 15 to 20 on the full marathon course and the communities of Appleton and Menasha. The half marathon participants also join the marathon participants just before mile 19 (mile 6 for the HM) in their quest for the Finish Line. The excitement, spectators and entertainment really begins to ramp up in this section of the course carrying participants towards the Finish Line.
Mile 15 – Mile 18
After leaving the area around the third Relay Exchange Zone at Mile 15, participants will continue to traverse through the neighborhoods of east Appleton before heading south towards Midway Road. Midway Road is important as this is the point in the course where you will start taking a more direct route to the Finish Line – a pretty good thought to most people at this point in the race!
Water Stations: Emerald Ln/Garnet Dr. intersection
Midway Rd/Lake Park Rd. intersection
Medical Station: Emerald Ln/Garnet Dr. intersection
Mile 18 – Mile 20
After crossing Mile 18, you’re treated to a water station, some entertainment and then the entering into Menasha. For the full marathoners, you are now back on the same course with the half marathon participants – although you likely won’t see many half marathon participants for a couple of miles down the road. Manitowoc Road in Menasha features a variety of activities providing you with a healthy diversion as the miles stack up. A water station, medical station, park, the Mile 20 ‘Wall’ and the fourth and final Relay Exchange Zone all move you through miles 19, 20 and on to 21.
In the coming miles, the Cities of Menasha and Neenah will also feature additional parks, running along the water and over a couple of bridges. Keep focused and enjoy the last 6+ miles toward the Finish Line – it’s a feeling you won’t soon forget!
Water Stations: Midway Rd @ Greenwood Village Apartments
