    It was a beautiful course, with a few easy hills , we crossed the Mississippi River a few times & the race ended in a park. Not a lot of spectators on the course so it was a pretty quiet race. The race was a point to point so we were bused back to the start make sure you know your drop off point. That got a little confusing if you’re not from the area. We didn’t do a drop bag and we wished we would have because it was windy & cool after running. Overall a nice race! My friend got a 3 min PR (picture below) ☺️

    Race Day. Arrived at 730am to get free parking( success) race started on time. Lord, we started downhill, with 1 steep up- hill. Then it was little up- hills. My legs told me repeatedly, what are we doing.. 😆.  But we made it through. Crowd support okay, better at the end..After race fuel bananas, of course water, chips, protein bars. Since we ran from one point to the next. We were bussed back to the start.. which felt like the longest bu

    Beautiful course, well organized production. Weather was perfect for running only a bit windy. You run through some lovely neighborboods and end in a park, crossing over the Mississippi three times. There are several minor up and down hills, but nothing killer. Nice tech T-shirt. Late start time enabled a seamless day-of packet pickup. Glad that the medal wasn’t oversized, I’m tired of the bricks some races hand out these days.

    Beautiful course, relatively flat, great weather. I enjoyed running past the beautiful, old, Victorian mansions throughout. Running through Minnehaha park near the river was also enjoyable. MORE

    Race is out and back on a closed road mostly along the river. Course is wide and straight so there is plenty of room to pass/be passed. Water stops were spot on and volunteers were nice and competent. A few rolling hills 500 elevation gain.

    Race is fairly small a few hundred people for the half and 10k combined which start at the same time. Course was easily followed.. A local race with most from Minneapolis area. Parking was a bit of a challenge with spots filling up fast, get there early or take the free mass transit.

    Race website and emails had everything you needed to know. Shirt and medal were ok. Nothing special.

    Very impressed by this race and will definitely do it again. It was a really fun course, great aid stations. There is one boring stretch at the half-way point but it doesn’t last very long. This is one of the most organized races I have participated in.

    Always a great race. This is a Minnesota tradition. Well organized, beautiful course and always without fail unpredictable weather. I really enjoy this race and would recommend it. They also offer a 10K and 5K (I think).
