Trail Lights and night life


Bring a headlamp with you to the 2017 Night Light Half Marathon! With distances for the whole crew the Night Light Half is certain to be your best night run of the year. Live music, and beer await you at the finish line! The race course winds its way through the trails of Battle Creek which is 100% off pavement. Expect grassy/dirt trails and a fair number of large climbs (yes hills!) The course is not lit so be ready with your own head lamp! Take in a great sunset and the lights of St. Paul as you run along the bluffs.
