What’s new at this year’s weekend of events?

Posted on Sep 16, 2021, by

While we are excited to continue our traditions of giving back to our community, this year there are a number of new things to look forward to at our 30th running of the Community First Fox Cities Marathon Presented by Miron Construction on Sept. 17-19, 2021.

  1. Trucks for Participants and Kids – sponsored by Bergstrom
    Every year, Bergstrom Automotive supports our events in fun ways from pace car Corvettes to cars, trucks and vans used on race week. This year, Bergstrom will also be donating a truck that gets wrapped with all the participants’ names on it and a truck that kids can write their names on at the Guardian Kids Fun Run.
  1. SCHEELS 10K
    Participants in the Ascension 5K and SCHEELS 10K will get a first look at the newly renovated Lakeshore Avenue trail. The stretch along Lakeshore Ave. was recently improved by the City of Neenah to be more walker/runner friendly. This will also be the first time the 10K will take place. The event features a flat course that weaves through historic neighborhoods and picturesque waterfront views. Both of Saturday’s events also wrap up at the same finish line as the Sunday Marathon & Half Marathon. Come experience the unbeatable energy and excitement! 
  1. Chick-Fil-A
    Chick-Fil-A joins us as an in-kind food sponsor this year and will be providing chicken nuggets for the Kids Run participants as well as chicken sandwiches for the 5K and 10K participants on Saturday.
