It was another gorgeous day for the Wild Duluth races! Thanks to all of the runners and the great volunteers who made the race possible. We had a lot of fun and we’re looking forward to next year already! The results are posted on our Results page.

Preview of the various sections of the Wild Duluth course. Sort of a rush job, but it gives you an idea…

Due to runner demand for a shorter distance offering at Wild Duluth and a desire to share this spectacular course with a few more trail people, we’ve decided to offer the new Harder’n He!! Half Marathon in 2010. We’re only a month away from the event, but we’re hoping to keep numbers for the half marathon fairly small this year so we can be sure it works out logistically and doesn’t have a negative effect on the 50K and 100K races which we care about so much and are the primary focus of Wild Duluth.
The half marathon distance works out nicely with a nearly perfect 13.1 mile distance from the upper Spirit Mountain trailhead parking lot to Bayfront Park. The route follows the Superior Hiking Trail the entire way and includes many of the most spectacular views from the 50K and 100K routes. And, it will be a VERY challenging half marathon…you could say it will be Harder’n He!!

The Race Information page has been updated to reflect the new start at Oldenburg Point. Aid station distances have been updated. Please note that there are no longer out-and-back segments to aid stations at Grand Portage and the Zoo. Runners will run directly through the Grand Portage aid station now coming from Oldenburg Point. The Zoo aid station has now been moved to the base of Spirit Mountain as well. It is now called the Spirit Mountain aid station.
Also note that there will be bus transportation to the start for 50K runners. The Race Information page was not clear on that before.
See you at the race!
