St. Paul Grand Round


Minnesota Monster Dash Half Marathon, 10-Mile, 10K, 5K & Mt. Doom Challenge

Event Description

Half Marathon, 10-Mile, 10K, 5K & Mt. Doom Challenge (sequential 10K -> 5K -> 2.5K). For its 2017 running, the race runs through St. Paul along a fast, flat course that will offer an excellent chance to set a PR time, as it’s all downhill from start to finish. This year, the half marathon and 10-mile races will start at the Cathedral of St. Paul, and from there start out with a 4 1/2-mile-long east-to-west stretch along Summit Avenue. The race also hosts a costume contest — so you can run all 13.1 miles (or 10 miles or 3.1 miles, if you’re running the 5K) in costume. There will also be a costume contest at the end of the race.
