The Sour Grapes half & half run first started in 2001. A group of runners were unable to secure a spot in the Grandma's Marathon for that year. As a result, they decided to organize a run that would be fun, challenging and a means to enjoy the company of other enthusiastic runners; hence, the birth of Sour Grapes half & half. This years races include a half marathon run, a 10.55K run/walk, a kids mile run, and a kids half mile run.

Course Information:

The half marathon and 10.55K run courses traverse the beautiful, but challenging terrain of central Minnesota. The race course is a 10.55K loop. The half marathoners will complete the loop twice. The terrain includes some uneven ground, sandy soil and moderately challenging hills. Half marathoners will pass water stops 7 times. Those running or walking the 10.55 K will pass water stops 3 times.

The Sour Grapes Half & Half is held at the Northland Arboretum, 14250 Conservation Drive, Brainerd, MN 56401. Located in the heart of the lakes country in Brainerd/Baxter, Minnesota, The Northland Arboretum offers more than 540 acres of Green Space, including a Norway Pine Plantation, gardens, flower beds and over 20 Kilometers of trails.
