This unique half marathon course takes participants along the beautiful Gateway Trail in Washington County, Minnesota and through the streets of historic Stillwater, ending at Pioneer Park high on the bluffs above downtown Stillwater with a panoramic view of the St. Croix river valley. Runners on the 5K course (walkers are welcome too) begin at Browns Creek Park and share a common finish line at Pioneer Park.

2. Canoeing 101
