Get ready for a summer spent exploring the Valley by foot.

Welcome warmer days on the trails this spring and summer. Run Stillwater, a family-run, woman-owned business, is focused on bringing people together for classic fun throughout the Valley.

There are five courses to look forward to in 2024, each with multiple distances available (often 5K, 10K and a half marathon). “All of our courses are completely different, so running the series you get to see the full range of what the Valley has to offer,” says Run Stillwater coordinator Stacy Einck.

Stillwater Half Marathon: May 25

On a course that winds along Gateway State Trail, through Stillwater’s South Hill and into Pioneer Park, runners will experience a plethora of views unique to the birthplace of Minnesota.

Lift Bridge Road Race: June 29

Sponsored by Lift Bridge Brewing, this race starts and ends at the brewery’s Stillwater location. The festive finish includes free beer for runners.

St. Croix Crossing: July 27

Enjoy forests, farmland and panoramic valley views on this paved course, which takes runners from Wisconsin across the St. Croix Crossing Bridge to finish at the historic Stillwater Lift Bridge.

Gopher to Badger: August 10

Since 1997, runners have flocked to this state showdown. Full of friendly competition between the two states, the race begins near Stillwater and takes participants across the I-94 bridge to finish in Hudson, Wisconsin.

Log Run: September 21

Don’t miss this classic local race that, this year, adds a half marathon distance. Log Run is known as one of the fastest courses in the Midwest with a mostly downhill path to the finish line.
