Wisconsin > Dick Lytie Spring Classic Half Marathon
Green Bay, WI



Saturday, March 26, 2011

Event Details

More than 330 runners crossed the finish line at the 2010 running of Green Bay's Dick Lytie Spring Classic Half Marathon, the 30th running of the race named in honor of the local running legend and run just as the seasons are giving way from winter to spring. Described by both organizers and past participants as hilly and challenging, the race takes runners on a 13.1-mile course that starts and finishes near the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus on the east side of the city, and is usually run in both cold temperatures and plenty of wind.

From the starting line at the Shorewood Golf Clubhouse, the course takes runners along city streets through west Green Bay, along some serious uphill and downhill stretches that will make runners think ahead about how they're going to tackle the hills. Portions of the course remain open to traffic during the race, and runners get a chance to run for a stretch along the shore of Green Bay, which thanks to the time of year the race is run, often still has ice covering much of its surface when runners are competing in the race.

After numerous hills throughout the race, the last two miles of the course are thankfully mostly flat, as runners head back into the university campus for the finish. The race also includes a three-mile race, which drew just over 140 runners in 2010.

Race Weather & Climate

Famous for the often brutally cold winters that visit this city of roughly 100,000 near Wisconsin's eastern shore with Lake Michigan, Green Bay can still experience very cold weather conditions in the early spring. In March, average monthly temperatures range between 40°F and 23°F, while precipitation amounts average just over 2 inches for the month.
