Über Door County Half Marathon

Shaded by trees throughout much of the course and featuring views of the waters of Wisconsin’s Green Bay on one side and Lake Michigan on the other, the Door County Half Marathon & Nicolet Bay 5K takes runners along the paved pathways and park roads of Peninsula State Park, a 3,776-acre park that lies nestled on the northern end of the state’s Door County Peninsula.

Often called “the Cape Cod of the Midwest,” the park offer abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation from the spring through the summer and fall seasons, including an 18-hole golf course, an island just off the park’s northern coast, hiking throughout the trails that wind through the park, and camping at any of the more than 400 campsites located throughout the park’s forests.

The entire half marathon is run on paved surfaces in Peninsula State Park. This U.S. Track and Field certified course starts and finishes near Nicolet Beach.

Half marathoners will have access to aid stations nine times throughout the run. Each aid station will have medical personnel and volunteers. Water and Gatorade will be available at all locations and Cliff Shot Gel will be available at Aid Station E (just before mile marker 8). Restrooms are located near the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse and near Tennison Bay (Miles 2 and 11 on the half marathon course and Mile 1 on the 5K). All other Aid Stations will have portapotties located just before the aid station.


Overall and master winners for the half marathon and 5k will be awarded with prize packages and age group winners will receive medals. Overall and master winners are eligible to win age group awards.


Parking at Peninsula State Park is limited to 650 vehicles on race day, so carpooling is suggested. If you plan to drive to the park, be sure to get an annual park sticker ($28 for WI plates, $38 for out-of-state plates) or a daily pass ($8, $11) if you don’t already have one.


The Door County Half Marathon and Nicolet Bay 5K will be chip timed. Timing chips are attached to your bib. To ensure proper recording, wear your bib on the front of your torso. The chance of your chip not reading increases significantly if it is covered by clothing or worn on the side of your leg or your back.

The course takes runners along the shores of Geen Bay, on the bluffs atop the Niagara Escarpment, and through the secluded woods of Peninsula State Park. The course also winds past historical markers and scenic overlooks including the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, Sven’s Bluff, and breathtaking panoramic views of Nicolet Bay, Green Bay and the islands dotting Lake Michigan.


Like the 5K race, the half marathon starts and finishes at Nicolet Beach, which overlooks the waters of Nicolet Bay on the park’s northeastern corner. From there, runners follow a winding loop route that heads first westward and then southward along the park’s northern edge, along Shore Road.

Just after passing the mile 2 marker, runners then turn onto Bluff Road and head back along the shoreline, and turn again onto the road that leads to the Blossomburg Cemetery.

The race organizers describe the park’s hills as “challenging,” and it’s here that runners will begin to encounter the first big rise in elevation, as they pass the cemetery and turn left onto Middle Road, as they’re passing through mile markers 4 and 5.

The next few miles take runners into the park’s interior and remain hilly, with stretches along Skyline Road, Hemlock Road and Highland Road before heading back toward the shoreline for the return route back to the finish line.

After the field passes the mile 10 marker, the course then features big downhill to the 11th mile, after which runners then head back along the route they ran in the early part of the race to the finish.
