Race is SOLD OUT!

Dam Site Half Marathon

7:30AM CDT


ABOUT THE DAM SITE RUN...  The Dam Site Run was created in 2020.  It started as simply a rare opportunity to race that year when nearly every other race was cancelled.  Turns out, the late October date meant perfect fall colors as the leaves started to fall around Lake Bloomington, creating the perfect backdrop for a fall race.  The beauty of the fall colors at Lake Bloomington in late October is waiting for you!

THE TRADITION CONTINUES IN 2023!   Certified course.  Custom commemorative race bib with your name on it (if you register by October 1st).  Post race food.  Chip timed, with split times at 1/3 and 2/3 of the way.  Awards.  Finisher medal (optional).  Awesome swag.  And beautiful fall colors.  Our goal is to give you your money's worth.

*NEW* NO SINGLE USE PLASTICS THIS YEAR...  We are challenging ourselves to put on an event with no single use plastics.  No plastic water bottles, not even bottles of sports drinks.  If we can put on an event and leave a more positive impact on our environment, we should, right?  Look for custom insulated Polar Bottles waiting for you at the finish line that you can fill with your drink of choice and take home with you.  We have a couple other ideas we're working on, stay tuned!

SUPPORT THE ECOLOGY ACTION CENTER  In keeping with our environmental focus for 2023, you have the option to donate to the Ecology Action Center when registering.  Any registrants who donate in July will have their donation DOUBLED!  Seriously, we will match all the donations received in July (up to $1000).

CAN YOU FIND A BETTER VALUE!? The registration launch special is only $34.99 (valid the first week July 17 - July 24).  And all active Lake Run Club Members are entitled to $10 off their registration.  Seriously, another $10 off!  Thank you for being a Lake Run Club member and supporting this local event.
