GREEN BAY - The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon will enter into its 15th year this weekend.

Organizers are busy with the final preparations for the races.

Packet pickup and registration is on Friday. The Cellcom 5K and Kid's Power Run take place on Saturday. The marathon, half marathon and marathon relay will take place on Sunday.

In addition to text alerts, organizers have incorporated social media this year. Runner and spectators can keep up on all the action by signing up for updates on Facebook and Twitter.

Volunteers are still needed for the events.

FOX 11's Pauleen Le spent the morning learning about new additions to the route, the watering and medical stations, the work volunteers do, and exploring the technology that goes into the event.
