Great Lakes Weekend Information
2013 Race Information coming soon!
New course for 2012! The half marathon starts on the shore of Geneva Lake in the quaint town of Lake Geneva, on the eastern side of the lake. You’ll take in a relaxing waterfront view as you head out of town along S Lakeshore Drive, passing Gilded Age-era mansions along the southern shore. As it happens, the Abbey Resort, the host of your fit girls’ getaway, is almost exactly 13 miles from Lake Geneva on the western side of the lake in the Town of Fontana. The course will challenge you with rolling hills under a shady tree canopy, until a sloping downhill brings you to the finish line at the Abbey Resort. Transportation between Lake Geneva and Fontana will be available before the the race. The 5K course starts and finishes at the Abbey Resort.
