October 14, 2017

Tour De Brew – 8:30 AM Start Time

Come take a ride! This bike tour will follow the same route as our Scenic Byway Half Marathon. Ride the beautiful rolling hills to Blakeley the home of U4ic Brewery. Then follow the course back to Belle Plaine where you can sample some of the Breweries finest beer and root beer. The price of this bike tour includes a shirt.

Kids Fun Run – 8:45 AM Start Time

The Kids Fun Run is a great opportunity for children to join in the fun. The kids will run down the block and back approximately 1/2 mile starting at the official start. Parents are welcome to run with their son or daughter. Participants receive a medal & tee shirt.

Half Marathon – 9:00 AM Start Time

This race is chip timed and USATF certified. Our Half Marathon starts at Court Square Park. It follows around the block and through beautiful downtown Belle Plaine before heading north across the Minnesota River. Our volunteers will be there to cheer you on! The course then takes you along Minnesota’s Scenic Byway with rolling hills, eagle sightings and stunning countryside views. Half marathoners will then run back through the historic Avenue of the Trees towards Blakeley, home of U4ic Brewery. Then a gradual climb takes you back to the finish line.

Make sure to pay attention to the water stops throughout the course. Local clubs compete for the best stop and runners vote at the end of the race. We give out over $600.00 in prizes last year to the winners.

The course will have volunteers, Ham Radio operators, and members of the Belle Plaine Police & Fire Departments, as well as some directional arrows to help guide runners through the race route. Be sure to pay attention to all course signs. Participants receive a medal, tee shirt & a drink token.

Half Marathon 2-Person Relay – 9:00 AM Start Time

We will be once again, offering a 2-person relay to our runners.  Runners are responsible for their own transportation to and from the half way exchange point.  Please note, the 1st runner will  run a bit longer than half of the 13.1 miles, due to safety of the runners and having a safe exchange point.  The exchange will take place near Mile Marker 8 and Water Stop 4.  Space is limited to 50 teams. Participants receive a medal, tee shirt & a drink token.

5K Run – 9:20 AM Start Time

This race is chip timed and USATF certified. Our 5K begins at Court Square Park and leads you on a fun route through Belle Plaine. It is lined with our very best volunteers who will cheer you on with all they have! Participants receive a tee shirt.
