Gear Western Country Half Marathon
The Gear Western Country Half Marathon and Borton Volvo 5k is a small-town event with a big-time feel. The course offers you a taste of Minnesota with quiet country roads, rolling hills, lakes, and crushed limestone trails. After finishing, linger for some unique western-themed post-race refreshments, and of course awards! Everyone will be hanging out, having fun, and cheering on every participant.
