Run Pick of the Month - St. Croix Crossing Half Marathon

Half marathon, 10k, and 5k with a finish over a bridge on July 27, 2024.

Participants in this race can expect a course that includes scenic pine tree lined roads, picturesque farms, and a trip over the scenic St. Croix Crossing Bridge to finish in the heart of historic Stillwater, Minnesota.

Why do we like the location? Stillwater has been named one of the most picturesque small towns in America, its trail system is among the best in the Midwest, and USA Today named it a Top 10 Small Town Food Scene in the country.

The St. Croix Crossing Half features a half marathon (no surprise there!), a 10K and 5K. Historically around 2,000 runners participate in this race
