Enjoy the beautiful fall colors as you take part in the 22nd Annual Memorial Medical Center WhistleStop Marathon and Half-Marathon, beginning in Iron River, Wisc., and finishing in Ashland on Lake Superior’s South Shore. The course is relatively flat, so it’s easy on the knees, and there will be aid stations along the way. Other races include the Cruisin’ the Corridor 5k and 10k. After the race, relax at the heated festival party tent and toast your finish with friends. The post-race party starts at 9:30 a.m. with music throughout the day by Acoustic Relapse, Northland College Jazz Band, Ashland High School Jazz Band and Russ Darwin. Then, at 7:30 p.m. runners and area residents will enjoy dancing the night away at the Blues and Brews Festival. Sample over 50 varieties of microbrews and area mead wines. Race registration required.
