Field

We are excited to allow participants the unique experience of running down the player's tunnel and around Lambeau Field. The course will be roped off and will keep participants on a rubber track around the outside edge of the field. Please stay within the roped area. If any participant steps on the field, the participant will be immediately disqualified and escorted off the premises.
