Get ready for your choice of two fantastic Duluth area races around Pike Lake!
The Pike Lake 10K and Half Marathon traverse rolling hills with scenic views. Both events start and finish near the water’s edge of Pike Lake at the Pike Lake Golf and Beach Club. The half marathon goes around the lake twice with a little extra addition on the second loop. Aid stations for both events are approximately every two miles.
Participants have the choice to participate in person or virtually. Both options are available in the registration link.
All participants in the 10K and half marathon receive a long sleeve technical shirt. The 2021 shirt is pictured below:
At this time, we are planning to host the Pike Lake 10K and Half Marathon at its normal capacity in a traditional race setting with spectators allowed. With that in mind, we are closely watching the Covid-19 Pandemic, and will make any necessary changes as we receive more information. These changes may include limiting participation capacity, implementing a wave-style start, offering a virtual option or going completely virtual with the event.
Please know the status of the Pike Lake 10K and Half Marathon is subject to change at any time. Should this event go completely virtual, all participants will automatically be transferred to the virtual event. We do not offer refunds for in-person event cancellation.

In 2020, the event was held safely in September by following the protocols from our COVID-19 Preparedness plan. We expect to hold the event “in person” in 2021 and will adopt all safety protocols as necessary from our 2020 Preparedness Plan in order to maintain a safe in-person event.
