Half Marathon, 10k, and 5k Run/Walk

Screen Shot 2015-01-05 at 9.46.21 PMWe at the Circle the Lake Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K want to thank all of you for coming out and participating in our different runs and walks last Saturday. It was a hot, muggy day and you didn’t let that stop you. You are tough! Well done! Check out this awesome aerial video of the race and click here for race day pictures.

The route is a beautiful paved and dirt road course around Circle Lake in Rice County, Minnesota. Runners will enjoy beautiful lake views and rolling hills. The half marathon has a few bigger hills to challenge you. Water and sports drinks are available every few miles. The half marathon is a certified course. All races are chip timed.

  • Families, kids, and dogs are welcomed.
  • Run it for a time or walk it for enjoyment.
  • We’re iPod friendly.


All proceeds go to clean up the Circle Lake watershed. If you wish to learn more about our efforts, go to www.circlelake.org.
