Marquette Marathon 


This Marquette Marathon course has quickly become

known as one of the fastest Boston Marathon

Qualifier Courses in the country!

The start is in the heart of the small

iron mining town, Ishpeming; which means “heaven”

in Ojibwa. The course then follows the Iron Ore

Heritage Trail down into Marquette.

The course is fast, and new for 2021, will finish

inside the Superior Dome.

Shirts and medals to all finishers!

A course map will be posted soon!

From Start to Finish: Net Elevation

Drop of 1037 feet!
