Since its start in 1991, the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon has grown into one of the most popular and largest half marathons in the United States. Named a “Runners Choice” event by RaceRaves, the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon was voted in 2019 the best 13.1-mile race in the state of Minnesota. With rolling hills and a net downhill elevation, our racecourse starts north of Duluth, MN and runs along Scenic Highway 61, hugging the shores of Lake Superior before taking participants through the heart of downtown Duluth and finishing in historic Canal Park. A point-to-point course that offers rolling hills and oftentimes has a tailwind on race day, the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon is perfect for rookie and veteran runners alike. Plus, our race weekend brings one of the nation’s largest expos as well as a traditional pre-race spaghetti feed and one of the best post-race celebrations you’ll find anywhere!
