We have partnered with the Chippewa National Forest to bring you a race for those who love nature and would never be called “faint at heart.” The course starts in the quaint, lakeside town of Walker, Minnesota, hugging the borders of Leech Lake (the 3rd largest lake in Minnesota). After winding through the blocks of our small town, you will venture out into the forest to enjoy vibrant fall colors, the sweet smell of wildflowers and leaves changing, and the clean air of nature unspoiled.
Trip Advisor looked at every state in the USA and chose the top marathon worth traveling for. So if you’re a road warrior who is looking for another medal to hang around your neck, or if you just want to figure out how to get off the couch and go running, consider Walker North Country Marathon as highly reviewed and participated in for Minnesota. This list of races are more difficult than others, some have breathtaking scenery, and others are some of the most fun events you can handle while also getting blisters.
