39 miles of marathon course set up in Wausau

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- You'll see hundreds of runners flooding the streets of Wausau Saturday.

Organizers of the Wausau Marathon say more than 400 people from 28 states and three different countries will compete.

Friday was all about getting the course ready and signing up the last minute racers.

For some runners, this marathon could lead to something bigger.

"The piece that people want to come here for is that it's one of the last northern races that is a Boston qualifier, and we are relatively flat which is surprising to say for anybody who lives in Wausau," said Scott Liegl, the sales manager for Wausau's Visitor's Bureau.

The racing gets underway Saturday morning at 7 in Marathon Park.
