The Door County County Half Marathon: A family tradition

From Jeanne Hammer, condominium owner at High Point Inn: One of our favorite family memories from 2009 was the weekend we spent in Door County for the Door County Half Marathon/ 5K run through the beautiful Peninsula State Park.    If you are just a novice runner (or a jogger like me) or a serious distance runner, this race is for you.  The scenery through the park made the course the most enjoyable 5K we have ever run.  This year we will be planning our stay at the High Point Inn, Ephraim as we did last year.  It was so convenient , the bus picked us up right from the Inn that morning and took us to the race start.  After the race there is a party in Fish Creek with entertainment, food and beverage.  Just a great weekend to kick off the spring….hope you can come!
