Walk Wisconsin

Held annually the first Saturday in June each year, Walk Wisconsin is the premier walking event in the Midwest! This is a non-competitive event, encouraging walkers of all ages and ability levels. The full, 3/4, 1/2 and 1/4 marathon events utilize the scenic Green Circle Trail which passes the Wisconsin River, Plover River, several lakes, and unique ecosystems. The trail base for all routes include a combination of wood chips, crushed granite, road surface and wood boardwalk.

Please be at the Pfiffner Park bandshell 1/2 hour before transportation starts for your event.

Comfort stops are open based on official start times and are available approximately every 3 miles. If you start earlier than the scheduled time for your specific event, there is no guarantee of food/beverages at the stops and transportation is your responsibility.

No strollers or pets for any marathon event.

Finish line picnic/entertainment at Pfiffner Park Bandshell: 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm.

Event check-in will take place at the Pfiffner Park building, 501 Franklin Street, along Stevens Point's downtown riverfront.

All registered attendees are required to check-in before walking. At check-in participants will be given a sports sack, t-shirt, course map, event information and participant number/wristband.
