The SCHEELS Earth Day Half Marathon Run includes a full schedule of great events for everyone. Highlighted events include; the BLEND and Coborn's 1K Junior Run,5K fun run/walk, SCHEELS Half Marathon, and SCHEELS Half Marathon Relay. The two days of fun includes numerous activities for children, families, adults, runners and non-runners alike, bringing our total number up to over 5,000 participants.
This year (2014), our event will fall on the weekend of April 18-19. St. Cloud State University once again will serve as the primary host for the event. This is where you will pick up packets, and take in our terrific expo!
All races will start and finish on campus and give participants a phenomenal tour of St. Clouds community.
The Health & Fitness Expo will open on Friday, April 18th. National and regional vendors will be there with the latest and greatest in running apparel, shoes, and souvenirs!
The Youth Run will begin at 6:00PM, and the Friday Night 5K will start at 6:30PM.
At 8:30AM on Saturday morning, we will kick off everything with the Half Marathon and Half Marathon Relay. The event has built quite the reputation for having terrific fan support, and great entertainment as well as dedicated volunteers, on what we hope is a beautiful day in the early spring.
After your race, you can meet up with your friends and family on the SCSU campus to take in the Coborn's Finish Line Food Fest!! Replenish those muscles with everything from soup to nuts, shower up in the finish line locker rooms, check out your results instantly at our on-line results table, and cheer on the rest of the finishers.
