Lake Minnetonka Half Marathon


Lake Minnetonka Half Marathon - May 7

Cost: $65 through March 10.

Gear and food: I've liked my shirts the years I've done this one. The food is nothing spectacular.

Weather: The weather has been good every year I've run it, but late spring Minnesota weather is fairly unpredictable.

Course: Unless you've run your previous half marathon PR on a very hilly course, this one is not a PR course. There are a decent amount of hills and some nice views of Lake Minnetonka and lake front houses.

Crowd support: Not too much to speak of. There are usually spectators on the course, but they're few and far between. There's a decent amount of spectators at the end, but not a ton.

I've paced this race several times and enjoy it. If you're looking for a challenging course, this is a good one. It has a decent amount of scenery and a fairly large field. The weather is usually good, so it's a nice early season race.
