2017 Ham Run Half Marathon, 5K Run & Little Runts Run | Gunflint Trail
May 6, 2017
A one of a kind race that travels along a National Scenic Byway that winds its way through the Superior National Forest on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
A logo with a pig on it and the name “Ham Run” may not seem fitting for a race in Northeastern Minnesota. The race started the year after the Ham Lake Fire ravaged the Gunflint Trail. To commemorate the coming together of the community and the greening up of the forest in the springtime as well as in the areas affected by the fire the Ham Run.
The Ham Run was just labeled by USA Today as one of “10 great 5K runs to build a vacation around”.
There will be a picnic all day on Saturday at the Boundary Waters Conference Center at Gunflint Lodge. Free for runners and $10.95 for guests.
