The Scheels BurliMOT Half Marathon is a unique running event that showcases the beautiful communities of Burlington and Minot, ND by way of a scenic 13.1 mile course that follows the Souris Valley along dedicated running/biking paths. The race ends in downtown Minot.  

All runners registered for the half marathon, half marathon relay, or 5K by September 1st will receive a custom BurliMOT shirt.  

Medals will be also be provided for all half marathon, half marathon relay, and 5K finishers.  


Races:
Half Marathon – Starts in Burlington on Saturday, September 9th at 8:30am.  Shuttles will be available from downtown to get you to the start line.  Parking near the race start is located on the north side of the Sports Complex; please follow Colton Ave to Davis St North, then turn right onto Valley Ave. The race ends downtown Minot.

Half Marathon Relay – This race starts at the same time as the Half Marathon and follows the same course.  Relay runners can exchange wherever they want along the course. The first leg can run 11 miles and the second can run 2.1, if they choose.  The second leg will just need to be waiting on the course wherever the team decides and hop on when the first leg gets to that point. You may also add additional runners (up to 4 total) and each can run their own portion of the half marathon relay, exchanging wherever your team decides. The cost of the Half Marathon Relay covers two participants, but additional shirts and medals will be available for purchase for those additional runners. There is no shuttle to the half way point so although those running the 1st leg can hop on the shuttle to get to the start of their leg in Burlington, the 2nd leg is responsible for getting themselves to the start of the the 2nd leg.  When registering for this race, you have the option to allow the 1st leg person for the relay to continue on to finish the full half marathon, it just needs to be noted in the questions answered during registration so we know to chip them for both the relay and the half marathon.

5K – This race starts at Oak Park located at 1300 4th Ave NW, Minot at 9:00am by the bandshell.  The 5K then joins along the half marathon course and finishes with them downtown.  Parking is located next to the Oak Park Splash Pad and the Oak Park Village across 4th Ave from the entrance of Oak Park.  Please do NOT park in the Main Oak Park parking area.

1 Mile Walk/Run/Roll – This race takes place on Friday, September 8th at the same time and place as packet pickup.
