The status of the 2021 MMC WhistleStop weekend is subject to change at any time. We realize that the COVID-19 pandemic is a dynamic situation, and we will continue to monitor all updates from the Wisconsin Department of Health and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control).  If the status of the event changes, we will notify participants via email as soon as possible. If COVID-19 conditions don’t improve and the in-person marathon/half-marathon weekend races are cancelled, registrations for those who registered for the in-person races will automatically be converted to the virtual races and details for reporting finishing times will be emailed to participants.

We do not have a walking division for the WhistleStop Marathon or the Half-Marathon.  Walking the Full Marathon is NOT allowed. Walking the Half Marathon IS very doable and quite fun. Walkers are asked to use racer etiquette, this includes lining up after the runners at the start lines, to stay on the right hand side of the course and please, do not walk three or four abreast on the trail. Make sure you allow runners to pass on the trail. Marathon registrants will be allowed to switch to the Half-Marathon if requested via email to officemgr@visitashland.com by Sept. 21 if that race has not been capped. There will be no refunds issued when switching to the 5K or 10K. After September 21st thru October 5th race changes will cost an additional $10.00 if spots are available. NO race changes will be made after October 5th. Questions? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions. Race Nutrition Tips Other Races
