About The Rails to Trails Marathon

The Rails to Trails Marathon in Norwalk, Wisconsin on 1 October, 2023 is a must-do race for runners of all skill levels. The route takes you through the stunningly beautiful countryside of western Wisconsin and follows an old railroad track that has been converted into a multi-use recreational trail. Runners will enjoy the flat terrain and wide pathways as they make their way from start to finish.

The scenery along this half marathon route is simply breathtaking; runners will be surrounded by lush fields of wildflowers, towering trees and vibrant foliage as they run along the path which winds its way through local farms and villages. With each step taken, runners can take in some truly breathtaking views of rolling hillsides with streams meandering through them – making it one of the most picturesque routes you could ever wish for!

Weather wise, October is usually fairly mild in Wisconsin so temperatures should not be too extreme – ideal conditions for running a half marathon! It’s also likely that there may be some light rain during parts of the race but this shouldn’t detract from your enjoyment or performance too much (just remember to bring waterproof gear just in case!).

Crowds at this event tend to be quite large; with thousands taking part every year it’s sure to have an electric atmosphere! Spectators line up alongside many sections of the route offering words of encouragement and cheering on those taking part – it really helps spur racers on towards achieving their personal best times! Special touches like these mean that even if you don’t complete your goal time, you still feel accomplished due completing such an amazing challenge.

Overall then, The Rails To Trails Marathon offers something special for everyone – whether you’re looking for a leisurely jog or pushing yourself out your comfort zone trying to achieve a new PB – it’s sure to provide memories that last forever!
