Gear Western Country Half Marathon & Borton Volvo 5k
The Gear Western Country Half Marathon and Borton Volvo 5k is a small town event with a big time feel. Our course offers you a taste of Minnesota with quiet country roads, rolling hills, lakes, and crushed limestone trails. After finishing, linger for some unique western themed post race refreshments, and of course awards! We will be hanging out, having fun and cheering on every participant.
New this year is a Gear Western throw blanket for all participants! Think of the future fun you can have by a campfire, eating canned beans while cozied up under the Gear Western blanket.
We will also continue our Hobby Horse division in 2021. There is no separate sign up, just show up with a hobby horse. But expect a lot of extra cheers AND prizes at the finish line.
