The course for the Team Ortho Minnesota Monster Dash Half Marathon takes runners on a point-to-point route that starts at the Cathedral of St. Paul and finishes on Shepard Road just past the Smith Avenue bridge, overlooking the Mississippi River. In between, the race unfolds in a sweeping, C-shaped loop around the bend in the river, with long stretches along Summit Avenue, Mississippi River Boulevard and Shepard Road that keep runners close to the river for most of the race.
