Run Forward and Give Back this fall at the 18th Annual Maple Leaf Walk Run. 100% of event proceeds directly support the Y's Annual Campaign, which benefits the community by providing opportunities for youth and adults to achieve so much more.
Participants of the Maple Leaf Walk Run will have a unique experience- running on the famous Oktoberfest Parade Route just hours before it is full of marching bands, floats, and the Oktoberfest Royal Family.
Enjoy 13.1 scenic miles of the Mississippi River, majestic bluffs and the support of spectators along the parade route. The course is flat and fast, easy to set a personal best on. The finish is in Riverside Park, overlooking the Mississippi River.
The 5 Mile and 5K courses also follow the Parade Route, following an out-and-back on Copeland Ave.
2016 Participant Testimonials
"My husband and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary by running the Maple Leaf Half. It was a great event and we both ran our personal best times. Beautiful day!"
“Well, to be honest, have not run for quite some time now until this run. I did this mainly to support my sister running in it and I thought it would be fun to accomplish something together. Though I might be a little sore, this race reignited my love for running. I plan to stick with it and do much more runs in the future .”
"I have always been a bigger guy. I never thought I would be able to run long distance. So I started to run and get fit. My goal a year and a half ago was to be able to run a 5k without stopping. I accomplished that. So I set a goal of a half marathon, my first was the Green Bay Cell com half, finishing in 2 hours and 39 minutes I was able to accomplish my first goal. Now I am looking to get better at running and the Maple Leaf did that for me. I think I finished right around 2 hours and 26 minutes shaving about 13 minutes off of my old time. The Maple Leaf has a special place in my heart because of the success I've seen and the fun my wife and I had. We are hoping to make it an annual tradition. Thanks for keeping peoples fitness in mind and setting up a great run!"
