Journeys Marathon offers an inspirational, unique and breathtaking course, which starts with the woodland backdrop of the Boulder Junction, Wisconsin area on rustic roads, while meandering through the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest and past many scenic northern Wisconsin lakes along the way to the finish line in Riverview Park in Eagle River, Wisconsin.
This event will kick-off with an All-You-Can-Eat Spaghetti Dinner (open to the public) and Race Registration/Packet Pick Up at the Northland Pines High School on Friday night, May 10, 2013 from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
