We Walk! and we are proud of it.
We welcome all walkers, including, but not limited to, ordinary walkers, fitness walkers, power walkers, nordic walkers, race walkers, hikers, wheelers, chairs pushers, and even walk/runners.
Our annual event started in 2009 on the Lake Wobegon Trail in Central Minnesota. This year’s event will again be on the Dakota Rail Trail, on the southwestern edge of the Twin Cities. All distances are on a walker friendly flat course with generous time limits for walkers.
For the marathon and the 50km, the time limit is 9 hours – from the 7:00 am start to 4 pm course close. That means you have to maintain a pace of about 20 min/mile for the marathon or 18 min/mile for 50km to finish in under 9 hours.
For the half marathon, the time limit is 8.5 hours – from the 7:30 am start to the 4 pm course close. That means you have to maintain a pace of about 41 min/mile to finish in under 7 hours.
Walk with us Saturday Sept 19, 2020 on the Dakota Rail Trail starting in Mayer, MN.
