We have relaunched the Pike Lake 10K and Half Marathon for Sunday, September 27th, 2020. Expect beautiful fall colors during this newly relaunched run.
Over 500 people are already registered between the 10K and Half Marathon!
Yes, there is an obvious temptation to wait to register, but the question to ask yourself is, will you train
without having committed?
"No thyself" as the ancient greek aphorism would say.
Get ready for your choice of two fantastic Duluth area races around Pike Lake!
The Pike Lake 10K and Half Marathon traverse rolling hills with scenic views. Both events start and finish near the water’s edge of Pike Lake. The half marathon goes around the lake twice with a little extra addition on the second loop. Aid stations for both events are approximately every two miles. And all finishers receive a complimentary pancake breakfast after the event.
Duluth’s newest half marathon, the Pike Lake Half Marathon is the perfect race to cap off the fall. Expect a super well supported event with a rural feel on a course that packs plenty of rolling variation.
The start and finish for the 10K and Half Marathon will be held on the grounds of the Pike Lake Golf Course! Post race activities such as the pancake breakfast will also be held at the Pike Lake Golf Course.
New Virtual option:
We’ve added a virtual option for participants. This option allows you to run the run a 10K or Half Marathon on any course you choose (we recommend a hilly one:). Your shirt, swag, and age group award (if you win one) we’ll be mailed to you after the event.
How will the event look:
We can’t predict what the CDC recommendations will be by September 27th; however, we do know that a number of major running events are set to occur around the end of September and early October. We may require athletes to wear masks before the event takes off, possibly for the first hundred meters of the race, and during the post race party. Other measures like a staggered start may also need to be implemented.
What happens if the rescheduled event is cancelled?
We will notify all participants well in advance if we need to cancel the physical event. If the second rendition is cancelled all participants will be automatically transferred to the virtual event. It will be your choice to participate in the virtual event. Shirts and awards will be mailed following the event.
