Leave No Trace Trail Marathon and Half Marathon

Sponsored by:


Part of Tents & Trails, The Midwest Trail Running Festival!
The Spirit of Marnoc (Love of the Outdoors) is said to dwell in the woods of the high plateau at Camp Manatoc.  This unique, mostly single-track, loop course is only open for public use during WRR events!  Now is your chance to challenge yourself by exploring the Boy Scout camp’s technical trails.  As beautiful as it is difficult, you’ll run through a white pine grove, tons of quick turns and plenty of hills.  Just when you’ve had enough, you’ll love the final hill for your sprint to the finish line.

Check out Tents & Trails, The Midwest Trail Running Festival weekend and camping options!

Please note-Dogs and outside alcohol are not permitted at Camp Manatoc.

  • Never drop out of the race by abandoning the course between aid stations and going “home.” If you must drop please report to an Aid Station or Finish Line. Runners who drop without reporting to an Aid Station or Finish Line will not be allowed to participate in future WRR races and/or events.  This policy is enforced for the safety of the runner as well as the rescue team who would need to search for runner on the course.


  • The race cut off of 8 hours and the 18:19/min mile pace on the course is strictly enforced. The aid stations close accordingly. If a runner is unable to keep the appropriate pace and is in danger of missing the cut off they will be asked to remove themselves from the race. If a runner refuses to do so they will be be on their own for all aid on the race course as well as the finish line should they choose to continue. This cut off is enforced for the safety of the runner as well as aid station volunteers.
  • If it is determined that a runner cuts the course in any fashion, whether intentional or not, they will immediately be disqualified from the race.
