About This Activity

Running. Outside. February. Minnesota?! You betcha dontcha know!

If you’ve ever wanted the opportunity (or maybe even the "excuse") to include those words in a single sentence - whether bragging to your friends, or...well, let’s just face it, is there any other reason to bring this up besides showing a little swagger? Here’s your chance!

Tri Fitness presents to you the "Half Fast Half Marathon!" Not only will you be able to truthfully use those words in a highly coveted sentence, but you’ll also receive an awesome shirt with the best catch-phrase around. When your friends ask what you did this weekend, proudly display your shirt and exclaim, "I ran Half Fast!"

This course runs through neighborhoods in Vadnais Heights, a quiet northern St Paul suburb just minutes from either metro. All abilities are welcome.  The course will stay open until noon. If you are unable to complete the half marathon within three hours, we will pick you up and return you to the race start. The school will be open so you can stay warm while you wait for your race start. There is plenty of parking nearby - arrive early and you can park in the school parking lot.  A great race to see where your fitness is at as we get closer to the summer racing season.
