Wind your way through the northern Brainerd Lakes Area...

The Brainerd Jaycees Run for the Lakes has grown tremendously since the first event in 2008. Despite the unforgettable first year blizzard, the event now draws more than 1,000 runners who wind their way through remarkable northwoods scenery. The all-volunteer race is organized from start to finish by Jaycees and carried out with the support of over one hundred members of the community and several local businesses. All proceeds from Run for the Lakes are donated to various non-profits.

This year marks the seventh annual Brainerd Jaycees Run for the Lakes!


Events include a Kids Fun Run, 5K, 10K, Half, Full, and Relay Marathons. The race weekend has something for everyone from amateur to professional.

Keep checking back for all the latest event updates. While you are here, enjoy video tours of the 2012 full and half marathon USTAF certified courses! We are sure you will be impressed with this year's race events!
