Spring will soon be sproinging all around us! Along with all the leaves and blossoms, come a host of warm-weather sporting events. Oshkosh shakes off the dust in April with a variety of events. The 2018 Oshkosh Marathon, the NPC Fox Cities Showdown, the Special Olympics, and the Run Away To the Bay!
Even if you’ve managed to get out into the great outdoors a lot this winter, there’s nothing like great spring weather to motivate a person. The warmth of the sun draws us outdoors and suddenly Oshkosh parks, golf courses, and trails are peopled again.
The 2018 Oshkosh Marathon takes advantage of the great spring weather every April with a host of related contests. The event includes a Full Marathon, Half Marathon, Corporate Marathon Relay, a Half Relay, and a 5k. All races are scheduled for April 29th, 2018 at the Leach Amphitheatre in downtown Oshkosh. Proceeds from the 2018 Oshkosh Marathon benefit local charity groups, like the Oshkosh Boys and Girls Club.
Another popular race scheduled for April is the Run Away To the Bay relay race. Run Away To the Bay is an annual relay race that stretches from Oshkosh all of the way to Green Bay! The 11-leg, 55-mile relay starts off from Oshkosh’s Menomonee Park and finishes in downtown Green Bay at the City Deck. Green Bay’s Hagemeister Park will once again be the sight of the post-race party, 2pm to 7pm. April 21, 2018.
An Oshkosh spring isn’t all running. The NPC Fox Cities Showdown also returns in April. This popular competition includes Bodybuilding, Classic Physique, Men’s Physique, Women’s Physique, Figure, and Bikini categories. The 20th annual NPC Fox Cities Showdown is scheduled for April 14th, 5-9:30pm, at the Alberta Kimball Auditorium.
One more, very important, indoor sporting event also takes place in Oshkosh during April: the 42nd annual Special Olympics Indoor Sports Tournament. The Special Olympics Indoor Sports Tournament is a team basketball event at the Kolf Sports Center on the UW Oshkosh campus. April 7th and 8th, 2018.
All of these sporting events go towards making Oshkosh April a very fun and active month. Add in all the great restaurants, shops, museums, and galleries in the area and you’ve the makings of a great Oshkosh getaway!
