Event Description

This race was developed with the novice runners in mind. It will be a fairly flat course. There will be no limits on registration and the entry fee is small compared to most races. Thus, the “No Frills” name. You’ll get a Medal for finishing, but not much else. After all, “IT’S ALL ABOUT THE RACE”! That’s not to say experienced runners won’t enjoy this race also. The Minocqua No Frills Marathon is a certified course so the race is a Boston Qualifier. Our USATF Certification Code Number is WI 12035 DM. This event will offer a last chance race before Boston registration in the middle of September.
