Half Marathon & 10 Mile

The 2016 Half Marathon and 10-Mile Monster Dash course in St. Paul is fast, beautiful and entertaining.  Did we say fast?  You just might PR on this course which is all downhill (400 vertical feet total from start to finish)!

Combined with the beautiful fall foliage, the start of the race is spectacular! It begins near the picturesque Cathedral of St. Paul which overlooks the city. Participants will run the tree-lined course along historic Summit Avenue and finish in Downtown St. Paul at the Mighty Mississippi (See course info).  The half marathon and 10-mile course is chipped timed and USATF certified!


And if you can handle it-- challenge yourself to run the distance in costume!  You could win our party city costume contest! But make sure you run with it on first-- we can guarantee fun but we cannot guarantee "no chafing".

Start time: 8:30am
