The Mid-Town 2km Race Walk Course is on the Mid-Town Greenway Rails-to-Trails park featuring an 18 foot wide asphalt path that is straight, flat, not significantly crowned, and pothole free. This pathway has no automobile or truck traffic and no road crossings, and can be closed to bicycle and pedestrian traffic for events.
We start most events at the Sheraton Midtown on Chicago Ave, just north of Lake St. This way there is a warm and dry place to wait for the April and November events.
The course has 1 measured out-and-back loop of 2 km with a measured center point that is used as the start/finish line. The start/finish line is directly north of the Sheraton Midtown. This layout allows us to offer a variety of distances on any day, as long as the distances are a multiple of 1 km.
USATF Course Certification Number MN-07034-RR.
We provide only basic course amenities:
We encourage you to bring your own water bottle and snacks for after the race.
