CentraCare Half Marathon Relay
Start: East St. Germain Bridge, Just North of River’s Edge Convention Center
If you’re not quite ready to tackle 13.1 miles, grab a friend, relative, or complete stranger and take on the Half Marathon route together! Each of you will run approximately 6.5 miles.
Starting on the East St. Germain Street bridge, the CentraCare Earth Day Half Marathon course tours the best of St. Cloud!
It includes gorgeous Mississippi River views and trails, tree-lined neighborhoods, the St. Cloud State University campus and — of course — the downtown St. Cloud finish!
Runners will cap off the Half Marathon with a run thru St. Cloud’s historic St. Germain Street. Expect an incredible finish, passing by all the wonderful shops, bars and restaurants of downtown St. Cloud.
Adjacent to the finish line, the party at the finish line on 5th Ave will feature live music and the best post-race celebration around including a free Beaver Island beer (21+) at participating bars/restaurants.
This generally flat half marathon course is the BEST way to kick start your running season!
Shuttle Directions for Half Marathon Relay Teams
- The CentraCare Half Marathon Relay Exchange Zone is located at 839 Cummings Lane on Clearwater Road (just after Mile 6).
- Holy Cross Church has allowed us to use the north end of their lot for parking if you prefer to drive your vehicle over to the Half Marathon Relay Exchange Zone. We do encourage you to take the shuttle as there will be limited parking available there.
- Make sure your first leg relay partner can drive the vehicle back to the finish area. Remember, downtown street closures will make it difficult/slower to access downtown and parking after the race has started.
- From the Trobec’s Bus drop off spot, you must enter the relay exchange zone via the crossing near the bus drop. Police officers and volunteers will assist foot traffic crossing. Spectators are allowed to be at the exchange zone, but cannot enter inside of the cautioned route and exchange zone. Signage will assist you and make it easy for you when you arrive.
