Stay the course. Whichever race you’re running, find your course right here.
Replacement of the bridge spanning the French River will close a segment of North Shore Drive beginning Monday, June 1. Traffic will be detoured along Ryan Road, MN Highway 61 and Homestead Road. Work is expected to last until mid-November with no ability to cross the river – even for pedestrians. This project is located just before Mile 12 of the full marathon course and runners would have to detour several miles to get around this location so the course is not ideal for 2020 virtual races.
