About this "Cheesy" event
Come participate in Wisconsin's "cheesiest" half marathon, two-person half-marathon relay, or 5k on Saturday, August 23, 2014. This boutique-style race delivers all the benefits of a big city race with small-town charm.
Start & Finish Locations
Start and finish are on Main Street in Hilbert. The half marathon and relay start promptly at 7:15 AM. The 5K begins at 7:45 AM.
The USATF Certified Half Marathon (WI-09044-DM) course traces the countryside of Calumet County from Hilbert to Forest Junction and returns on a portion of the Fox River trail.
Minimum age for runners for the half marathon is 12. The cut-off is 3.5 hours. For safety, no pets, bikes, skates, or strollers are permitted in the half-marathon event.

Water Stations - Be Safe + Hydrate
The Half Marathon includes seven aid stations with Gatorade and water. The 5K course has one water station runners can use on the way out and back.
Post-Race Cheese Feast
In 2013 the Village Hearthstone Restaurant provided a gourmet feast that included house-made maple nut granola with local yogurt and fresh blueberries, tea breads, seasonal salad, sharp cheddar and chive breakfast burritos with local tomato salsa, pizza, and beef sliders with a deep fried cheese curd garnish-and of course Wisconsin craft Beers for those 21 and over.
Each Half Marathon, relay and 5K participant will receive a feast ticket. If you lose your ticket or want additional tickets they may be purchased for $7.00 (cash only).
