    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 at The Depot.  

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

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



    Half Marathon - Starts at the Burlington sports complex on August 14th at 8:30am.  Shuttles will be available at The Depot to get you to the start line.  The race ends downtown at The Depot.

    Half Marathon Relay - This race starts at the same time as the Half Marathon and follows the same course.  The relay exchange is located by Dakota Bark Park located at 2905 7th Ave SW, Minot. 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.  There is parking by the dog park and the baseball diamonds. 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 at The Depot.

    Additional Info:

    There will be fun bus shuttles available to transport participants to the start of the events.  Space is very limited on the shuttles so we ask that if possible, please car pool or line up alternate transportation to the start.  For those that need to take the shuttles they will pick up runners in front of The Depot at 15 Main St N.  Buses will be leaving promptly at 7:00am and 7:50am  for the half marathon; and 8:30 am for the 5K.  We recommend getting there early and securing a spot because there are only about 40 spots available per load.
