Welcome to Marathon City

On behalf of our citizens, the board of trustees, and village staff, thank you for visiting us and taking the time to learn more about our community.

Our citizens have justifiable pride in our businesses and employment opportunities; pride in our schools and the opportunities for our children; and pride of living among caring friends, old and new, in a family oriented community.

Marathon City is picturesque village, built on a hillside along the Rib River. We are located on Highway 29, the main expressway between Green Bay and Minneapolis, just 10 miles west of Wausau and I-39. The village is just a short drive from many northern Wisconsin attractions.

Our residents have the best of all worlds. We enjoy the comfort and safety that living in a small, prosperous community provides. Yet, we have the convenience of larger city amenities and outdoor recreational opportunities just minutes away. This is what makes our village such a great place to live.

Marathon City is poised for growth.  Our business park along Highway 29 still has land available for development. Our renovated Main Street, with its brickwork and decorative street lighting, makes our downtown an inviting place to shop or share a meal with friends. Come and visit us soon.
