The Stillwater Log Run is pleased to announce that it Is adding a third race distance to its roster – a 12K! One of the few 12K races in the Midwest this is your opportunity to set a 12K PR! And, this is perfect timing to run this distance for anyone training for the Twin Cities Marathon events just two weeks later. This new distance joins the full roster of 10 Mile and 5K distances.
The Stillwater Log Run finish line is located at Boom Site Park three miles north of downtown Stillwater. Runners will finish at the same place the logs finished during the St. Croix Valley’s booming days of logging.
We heard from a lot of you that you'd like to have the option of receiving your packet in the mail prior to the race. We're adding that option for 2017. During registration, simply choose the "Mail My Packet" shipping option (+$20 register by 8/31 at midnight) and we'll send you your shirt, timing chip and bib approximately 10 days before the race. You may still pick up your packet during in-person registration the day before the race and on race day at no additional charge.
