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 will once

again finish at the Superior Dome.

Shirts and medals to all finishers!

Marathon course map is posted HERE!

From Start to Finish: Net Elevation
