The Door County Half Marathon has been postponed until October. That doesn’t mean that there is nothing to do in Peninsula State Park in late spring or summer. For starters, if you want to get a leg up on the race course, how about training a few days running the entire thing? It is a great way to know where the tough spots are and how you can pace yourself to make it through.
Ephraim Shores Resort, one of the premiere hotels near Peninsula State Park, will be opening for the season on May 7th. Because of the change in date for the marathon, Ephraim Shores is now staying open the week of October 24th and closing for the season on October 31st to accommodate our race guests, as we are a trolley stop for the actual race day.
