This race is chip timed and USATF certified. Our Half Marathon starts at Court Square Park. It follows around the block and through beautiful downtown Belle Plaine before heading north across the Minnesota River. Our volunteers will be there to cheer you on! The course then takes you along Minnesota’s Scenic Byway with rolling hills, eagle sightings and stunning countryside views. Half marathoners will then run back through the historic Avenue of the Trees towards Blakeley, home of U4ic Brewery. Then a gradual climb takes you back to the finish line.
Half Marathon 2-Person Relay:
We will be once again, offering a 2-person relay to our runners. Runners are responsible for their own transportation to and from the half way exchange point. Please note, the 1st runner will run a bit longer than half of the 13.1 miles, due to safety of the runners and having a safe exchange point. The exchange will take place near Mile Marker 8 and Water Stop 4. Space is limited to 50 teams. Participants receive a medal, tee shirt & a drink token.
