Greetings Runners and Happy 2022!

 

Running of the Bays Half Marathon and OLL 5K is back!  Although, due to a major bridge construction project along our half marathon route, we've had to change the routes.  Due to this change, the Half Marathon is NOT certified.  Looking forward to seeing you all at the start line in beautiful downtown Mound.  Hit the REGISTRATION button to be part of a fun morning of running in a beautiful community!

(Updates as always will be posted on Facebook and the website runningofthebays.com.)

Update on the Running of the Bays Half Marathon and

OLL 5K Routes

 

Due to a major road construction project that will be closing two bridges along the half marathon route, we have made a change to both routes. They will both start and finish downtown Mound at the Bethel Methodist Church. The Half will start at 7:30am (in rolling waves) with the 5K following directly after.  The routes will start at the church lot and go two blocks to the Dakota Trail. Then runners will go out and back along the Dakota Trail heading east towards Wayzata. The turn arounds will be at the half way points for both (at Kings Road for the 5K and just east of Orono Orchard Road for the Half Marathon.) Please note: due to this change, the half marathon is NOT A CERTIFIED half marathon.  PLEASE REMEMBER, THERE IS NO PARKING AT THE START/FINISH AREA.  PLEASE USE THE MOUND PARKING RAMP NEAR THE CORNER OF COMMERCE BOULEVARD AND SHORELINE DRIVE.  IT IS ONE BLOCK FROM THE START/FINISH AREA.
