About The Fox Cities Marathon

The Fox Cities Marathon in Appleton, Wisconsin on 15 September, 2023 is an exciting half marathon that provides a scenic and challenging route for runners of all levels. The race starts at the Neenah-Menasha YMCA and follows a picturesque course along the Fox River. Along the way you’ll pass many beautiful parks and other landmarks including Telulah Park and Riverside Park. There are also several bridges over the river that provide amazing views of downtown Appleton.

The weather in September is typically very pleasant with temperatures ranging from 60 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit (15-20 Celsius). It tends to be sunny with little chance of rain so it should be perfect conditions for running! The crowd support is always great too; there will likely be plenty of local spectators cheering you on as you make your way around town.

If you’re looking for something extra special during this race then look no further than Heartland Farms located just north of Appleton –– they offer up fresh apples from their orchards which makes for a tasty treat when running past! As if that wasn’t enough, after completing 13 miles there will also be free post-race massages available at City Center Park as well as live music performances throughout the day making this event even more enjoyable!

Overall, I can confidently recommend taking part in this wonderful event –– whether you’re an experienced runner or newbie looking to get into half marathons –– it’s sure to leave lasting impression due to its stunning scenery, friendly atmosphere and memorable experience!
