Half Marathon

  • ½ marathon map (13.1 miles)
  • Click here for an interactive map (distance may be slightly off)

The Half Marathon is a USATF-certified course. The course is measured to be the shortest distance while following traffic laws and running AGAINST traffic. At intersections, cross the road in a diagonal line (from left side of the road to left side of the next road), making sure to avoid traffic on the open course.

The race starts adjacent to the park’s parking lot and heads south on Hugo Rd, taking a right on Taylor Ave, which quickly merges into Bald Eagle Blvd. Continue on Bald Eagle until you come to Cty Rd H2. Head west on H2 and continue until Otter Lake road. Take a right on Otter Lake Rd and run uninterrupted for 3.5 miles, until you reach Cedar St. Head east on Cedar St, which quickly becomes 140th st, Elmcrest Ave, and 24th Ave. It sounds complicated, but it’s really not - it’s pretty much a straight line. You will then merge back onto Bald Eagle Blvd and continue south around the lake, back to the start/finish area.


  • 11k map (6.87 miles)
  • Click here for an interactive map (distance may be slightly off)
  • You will basically just run a counter-clockwise circle around the lake. You will start near the parking lots, then follow Bald Eagle Lake, with the course following the lake almost exactly. There are a few merges onto other roads, but for the most part you stay on Bald Eagle Blvd, and run around counter-clockwise around the lake.


  • 5k map (3.1 miles)
  • Click here for an interactive map (distance may be slightly off)

The 5K course will showcase historic White Bear Township neighborhoods and run along beautiful Bald Eagle Lake for a distance before returning to Start/Finish.


The finish area, where spectators and finishers can gather, watch and cheer as you cross the finish line to receive your medal will be located in the parking lot adjacent to the start/finish line. 

Bottled water, and post-race snacks will be provided.

Course Policies

  • Always run AGAINST traffic - the course is open to vehicles.
  • Dogs are allowed. You must start near the back of the pack and dogs must be leashed.
  • Strollers are allowed. Please start near the back of the pack (or the far side).
  • Headphones are allowed. Please pay attention to your surroundings at all times.

Awards and Prizes

Awards apply to Half Marathon and 11K races. We'll be supplying medals for 1st and 2nd place age group winners in the Half Marathon and 11K.  The overall male and female winners for the Half and 11k shall receive an entrance to a Tri Fitness race of your choice (good for 12 months).  There is no double dipping, so Overall winners cannot also be age group winners.

Please note that awards are based on the "gun" start time, meaning the official race start. They are not based on your individual chip time. What's the difference? Well, none really if you start near the front of the pack. But if you're fast, and you start yourself at the back of the pack, it could cost you an award recognition. So, if you think you might be in contention to do well overall or in your age group, then please line up for the start near the front of the pack.

Awards will be given to the following for the Half Marathon and 11K:

  • Top overall Male & Female athletes
  • Top 2 Male & Female athletes in each age group (19 & Under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+)

All finishers in all distances shall receive a finisher medal.
