About The Circle the Lake Half Marathon
The Circle the Lake Half Marathon in Faribault, MN is a race that offers not only a challenging course but also stunning views and a true country feel. Taking place on September 14, 2024, this race is perfect for runners looking to test their mettle before the Twin Cities Marathon, held just two weeks later.
The race takes you along the shores of the picturesque Circle Lake, located just 20 minutes south of Burnsville. As you run, you’ll be treated to breathtaking views of the lake and its surrounding landscape, with the possibility of spotting bald eagles, osprey, deer, and other wildlife. The gently rolling hills, mix of paved and dirt roads, and the historic Millersburg School House as the starting and ending point add to the race’s charm.
For those seeking competition or simply looking to have a good time, the Circle the Lake Half Marathon is open to racers of all levels, including families, dogs, kids, and seniors. And don’t worry about leaving your favorite tunes behind – this race is iPod friendly!
Not only will you have the chance to push your limits, but you’ll also be supporting a great cause. The Circle Lake Association, a charity dedicated to improving the lake’s watershed, sponsors this event. The proceeds from the race will fund important projects aimed at protecting and enhancing the lake’s natural beauty.
So lace up your running shoes, get ready to conquer those big hills, and join us for the Circle the Lake Half Marathon. It’s an experience that will leave you with a sense of accomplishment and a deeper appreciation for the beauty of rural Rice County. And after crossing the finish line, make sure to celebrate with a complimentary drink at Boonies Grillt – because you deserve it!
