Runners follow an out-and-back course along the banks of the Mississippi River at the Minnesota Half Marathon, which starts and finishes at St. Paul’s Lower Landing Park. From there, the race takes runners first east along Shepard Road in the direction of Childs Road and Indian Mounds Park, and then heads back along Shepard for a long stretch to the second turnaround point, between Alton and Madison Streets.
