Marked by beautiful views and a country feel, the Circle the Lake Half Marathon, 10k, and 5k will take you along the shores of Circle Lake in rural Rice County, MN. Located just 20 minutes south of the Burnsville, MN, these courses are run over rolling hills on a mix of paved and dirt roads.  It is possible to spot bald eagles, osprey, deer, ducks, pelicans, and to hear the hum of a distant tractor.  Runners will have views of the island in Circle Lake, home to many species of wildlife.  These courses are open to competitive racers, families, dogs, kids, seniors, and are iPod friendly.   We start and end at the historic Millersburg School House and you will follow the same route the Jesse James Gang once traveled.  
 The Half Marathon is certified (Certification Code MN14042RR). It is tough. And will test your mettle. There are several hills!  All races will be chip-timed. There will be posted mile markers and water/sports drinks will be available throughout the course.
 All racers registered prior to September 1st will get a commemorative t-shirt. We cannot guarantee a t-shirt for registrations posted after that date. 
There is a $5 price increase for each race on April 15th.  And another $10 increase on September 1st.  Register early to assure your spot and save some money. Online, pre-registration is preferred. There is a link on our website www.circlethelake.com for that along with a link for a paper registration if you prefer not to register online. You can also visit that website to see course maps and get the latest updates.  Same-day registrations will be available. We accept cash, check.  Races are rain or shine and we cannot offer refunds or transfers to another person.
 Invite your family and friends to cheer you on and celebrate your accomplishment at the Boonies Bar and Restaurant, located at the start/end of the race.  Boonies is pleased to offer you one complimentary drink of your choice after you finish.
Registration starts at 7:30 A.M. and the races begin at 9 A.M. 
Circle Lake is used for recreation, sports and by naturalists.  This is a charity event sponsored by the Circle Lake Association. www.circlelake.org  The association has many projects completed and much more planned to improve the lake's watershed.  The proceeds from this event go toward funding those projects.
