Paavo Nurmi Marathon, The Next 50 Years....Since 1969 the Paavo Nurmi Marathon has challenged runners from all over. 26.2 miles of hills, humidity, and heat make the course one of a kind. After celebrating the historic marking of 50 years, the race committee is excited to announce a new course route to the Paavo weekend!

The brand new course starting and ending on Silver Street in downtown Hurley will now create a new unique out and back course with a twist. The course will offer a safe, northern rustic experience through the historic communities along the way. Planning the new route has been a challenging experience for the committee, working to keep the traditional feel of the Paavo while finding a safer way for participants to explore Northern Iron County.

The Full Marathon and relays will begin on Silver Street while the Half Marathon begins at mile marker 13.1 (located on Hwy. Cty E) all at 7:30am Saturday August 8th, 2020.
