The Running of the Bays Half Marathon is a certified half marathon course that starts in the quaint little town of Mound, Minnesota and meanders through some of the most beautiful bays that lake Minnetonka has to offer.

The Half Marathon will leave town in a northerly direction and first experience the country side via county roads and the Luce Line trail. Runners will leave the Luce line trail and merge with the soothing waters along the bays of Lake Minnetonka. You will enjoy running the home stretch back into Mound on the shaded Dakota trail!

The 5K is a loop that finishes at Bethel United Methodist Church. The 5K Family fun run is for ages and paces. Strollers are welcome at the back of the 5K start.
