St. Lukes Wheels Off
Half Marathon

During the St. Luke’s Wheels-Off, Half Marathon runners will go through the I-35 tunnels, completely unique to our event and drop down to the St. Louis Bay to finish alongside the famous William A. Irvin freighter as fans cheer you on.

Tunnel
10K Run

Do not miss the chance to run on an Interstate Highway. The race route takes you through 6 tunnels and will keep a spring in your step with live music. While most of the time if you are running or walking on an interstate, you are carrying an empty gas can, not during the Tunnel 10K! Our closed course allows you to run on one of the most unique routes in Minnesota. After experiencing the rare chance to race on an Interstate, you will continue alongside the St. Louis Bay to the finish line at the famous William A. Irvin, a retired lake freighter. Join us come race day!

Rollerski

Our 42-kilometer option is the classic “ski marathon.” Starting in Two Harbors, Minnesota, this race takes you along the shores of Lake Superior on the beautiful Scenic Highway. As you get closer to Duluth, the landscape changes and the fans on the side of the road become more plentiful. Ski the famous I-35 tunnels, From there, finish with an outstanding view of the Aerial Lift Bridge. Join us at the nation's premier marathon rollerski race.

21K
Rollerski

This race is best suited as a great option for younger rollerskiers, more recreational rollerskiers, or skiers who are not looking for marathon distance competition. The 21Kis race starts at the halfway mark of the 42k option but still has the same charm. Racers still get to ski along the shores of Lake Superior on the famous Scenic Highway and I-35 tunnels. The finish line is the same as the 42k, with amazing views of the Aerial Lift Bridge that Duluth is so famous for.
