Lake Wobegon Trail Marathon

The course is flat, fast, and picturesque. The course is certified (USATF #MN-08042-RR). Many people feel that the trail from Holdingford to St. Joseph is the prettiest portion of the Lake Wobegon Trail. The trail is primarily rural except as it passes through the four small towns along the route. In a post on the “A Prairie Home Companion” website, Garrison Keillor said this about the Lake Wobegon Trail: “I‘ve biked the bike trail … and love the ordinary beauty of farmland and meadow and the towns along it.”

The Lake Wobegon Trail is a 10 foot wide asphalt bike trail on a former railroad track. The trail is smooth and has no cant. There is very little elevation change at any time along the entire length of the course. You cannot get lost on this course. Runners join the trail after one mile and then simply follow the trail to the finish. There is only one turn on the entire trail where the trail ‘T’s‘ at about 11.2 miles and runners go left at the ‘T’.

The finish line will close after six hours. Water stations will close at intervals of 14 minutes per mile from the start. We do not want to leave runners unsupported on the course. Therefore, runners who are not able to maintain at least a 14 minute mile average pace will be transported to the finish line by volunteers from the next water station. If you do not know whether you will be able to maintain at least a 14 minute mile average pace throughout the race, then unfortunately this is not the race for you
