Start: East St. Germain Bridge, Just North of River’s Edge Convention Center
The CentraCare Half Marathon course tours the best of St. Cloud!
This 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 CentraCare 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. At the end of the half marathon there will be a 40 yard dash! Once you see the timing mat you are going to want to give it your all! The person (male and female) with the fastest 40 yard dash time will be named the Fastest on Earth… Day!
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!
