Come and join us in the beautiful Belle Prairie Park nestled among some of the largest Red Pines in the area. The start area is along the Mississippi River and has a picnic area and playground. The 8K course is USATF certified, flat, fast, on asphalt and is chip timed. The 4K course will be on trails and roads. It is also chip timed. The 1K makes a small loop in the park on the asphalt.
