About The Twin Cities Women’s Half Marathon & 5K
The Twin Cities Women’s Half Marathon & 5K in Bloomington, Minnesota is a perfect race for anyone looking for an exciting and challenging run. The route of the half marathon is a 13.1-mile loop that starts within the city limits of Bloomington before heading into nearby Fort Snelling State Park. Along the way, runners will get to enjoy breathtaking views of the Mississippi River Valley, as well as rolling hills and stunning landscapes throughout the entire course.
At this time of year (25 June 2023), temperatures are typically mild but can sometimes reach up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit during midday hours. However, since most races begin early in the morning before sunrise when it’s still relatively cool out, this shouldn’t be too much of an issue during your run.
The crowd at this event is usually made up primarily of locals who come out to cheer on family members or friends running in either event – though there are also plenty of tourists who travel from all over just for this experience! Everyone involved creates an incredibly electric atmosphere that makes running such a long distance seem almost effortless compared to other races you may have done in the past.
One thing that really sets apart Twin Cities Women’s Half Marathon & 5K from other similar events is its focus on empowering women through physical activity and encouraging them to take charge and strive towards their goals – no matter what they may be! This positive message resonates with many runners throughout both events each year and adds another layer onto what already makes this race so special.
Overall, if you’re looking for a fun yet challenging half marathon to test yourself while also taking part in something bigger than just another run along flat terrain then I would definitely recommend signing up for next year’s Twin Cities Women’s Half Marathon & 5K! With its beautiful scenery combined with inspirational messages about female empowerment each runner will leave feeling inspired from start line until finish line!
