Of course, there isn't a place in Duluth that you could run that wouldn't be beautiful but this course is gorgeous. It starts at Hawk Ridge, continues along Skyline Parkway to Seven Bridges Road. From there, racers cross Amity Creek and finish the race along the Lakewalk near Leif Erickson Park.

It should also be noted that fall colors will be absolutely incredible at that time in Minnesota and especially in Duluth, meaning runners will have a chance to see them from above the city and as they weave through Duluth on the course.
