Race Information

Founded in 1982, the Minnesota Voyageur 50 Mile Trail Ultramarathon is one of the oldest trail ultras in the nation. The race follows a rugged, varied, out-and-back course that takes runners on a journey from Carlton, MN through Jay Cooke State Park and heads northeast over difficult, rough woodland trails to Duluth, MN, and back. Enjoy scenic overlooks of Duluth, MN, and Lake Superior, the iconic Swinging Bridge over the St. Louis River, and the infamous Power Lines.

The start, finish, and all race day festivities will be at Carlton High School. The weather for the MN Voyageur can be extreme. There have been several years when it was hot and humid, including 2003 when it was brutally hot with 90% humidity. In other years it has been cool, in the mid-50s, and wet. Plan for everything except snow – at least not so far!!

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
