The weekend before are the 2 small marathons of Eagle River and Lake Geneva, both on Saturday. I would actually love to see them move it to that weekend. That would set up a person to run 2 WI marathons the 1st and 2nd weekend in May. 4 marathons in 9 days would be fun. I would agree that it is a “Shame on them” for not having a great exit plan for closing the course.
