The Marathon to Marathon was the brainchild of Lois and LeRoy Lind. Sadly Leroy passed away before the first race in 1996. It was a popular annual event in Iowa, running for 22 years. Unfortunately the race ran for the last time in 2017.

Marathon to Marathon Route
Runners set off from Storm Lake High School in Storm Lake, IA, heading towards the finish line at Marathon Community Center in Marathon, IA.

The course was very flat, making it potentially a fast race. PR chances were also helped by there being few participants. Typically there were less than 200 runners, so there was little chance of anyone getting in your way and slowing you down.
