Race weekend registration and packet pick up opens today, September 6th at 4 PM at the Detroit Lakes pavilion. If you want to register, we still have room in all races. Race weekend registration for the half marathon will be limited to race shirts only, however. Because we sold out of this race, late registrations will not be able to receive a finisher medal. Looking forward to a great weekend of running!

It’s all a race should be. Good people, good atmosphere, and even ice cream.

A truly homespun event that I would call one of my favorites.
