Pike Lake 10K and Half Marathon

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:
