Copper Rock Training runs beginning

Our summer training runs for the Fox Cities Marathon have come to an end. 

Starting up on Saturday 9/24, there will be a group of Pacesetters members meeting Saturday mornings at 8am, rain, snow or shine, at Copper Rock Coffee on College Avenue, downtown Appleton. There are 5, 8 and 10 mile distance options, with one water stop on the course, and then coffee and socializing afterwards. This is a great way to keep your miles up in the off season, we'd love to have you join us for these runs!

There is a private PaceSetters tent with free beer at the start and finish line of the Fox Cities Marathon complete with PRIVATE team portable bathrooms.

Aside from the monetary benefits of membership, there are benefits money can't buy: lasting friendships, group runs  and giving back to the community such as the run we put on for the St. Joe's Food Program. 

Take your running to a great feeling with an organization that gives back to their community.
