Amazing views, a little hilly here and there. But an easy breeze around the lake.

With a distance just short of a 1/2 marathon, and an excellent mix of hills, neighborhoods, and beautiful views of the lake, this is my absolute favorite training run for all of my events. The only downside is a short stretch on a narrow sidewalk between 17k & 18k (around mile 11) but the rest of the course more than makes up for it. Running on the west side of the lake at sunrise near Monona Terrace is an experience. For my long runs I do the loop twice.

My favorite run in the US. I usually run the opposite direction, starting and ending at Monona Terrace. There are public bathrooms and drinking fountains along the way from MAy through September, and some stores with ice cream and clean toilets that don't mind runners using the facilities. Enjoy!!
