Elm Creek Park Reserve

Half Marathon & Relay

The 2020 Elm Creek Half Marathon is postponed with a reschedule date of Saturday, September 26. Our main priority is to ensure the safety of our runners, volunteers, spectators, staff and partners as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 virus. 

In the meantime we are excited to introduce Virtual Run Minne-Series to help keep you healthy and active. Registration is free. In fact, you will see the Elm Creek course is part of it. We invite you to check out the details here.

We will keep you informed on any additional information. Please make sure to save to your contacts to ensure prompt delivery to your email inbox. 

Run with nature at the inaugural Elm Creek Half! The route takes you on a tour of a beautiful 4,900 acre park over creeks, along several lakes, prairies and in and out of the woods. Runners will likely see a variety of wildlife including eagles, deer, loons and much more. This is a great wilderness run that is only 20 minutes north of the Twin Cities. Race the whole 13.1 mile loop or split the distance with a friend and run the relay.    

Registration is Open for the Virtual option.

We will not be keeping a wait list, but there are other great MN Run Series events coming up in 2020 so be sure to check them out at
