Battle Creek is the Twin Cities premiere urban trail recreation area. Combining scenic trails with urban vistas Battle Creek retains all the beauty of the outdoors while be just in the Twin Cities’ backyard. It’s hilly terrain will challenge even the toughest of runners while it’s single track trails will inspire any nature enthusiast. We hope you find Battle Creek as compelling and beautiful as we do.
The course will be a single 5k loop marked with pin flags. 10k runners will do two laps. The exchange zone and finish/lap lane are located adjacent to one another and the start zone will be in the normal stadium area (see the map below).
Weather can be variable in Minnesota —especially in the spring— so come prepared. Always bring extra layers. We will still hold the race during rain but will cancel for lightning or other severe weather.
On street parking is available around the Battle Creek Rec Center and in the Rec Center parking lot. Please be courteous to our neighbors.
