Brainerd Jaycees Run for the Lakes 2022 Marathon

Start Line

The start line for the marathon is on Lower Cullen Road, just past Carlson Hardware and before the Fire Station entrance. There will be water, Powerade and portable restrooms available near the start line.

Bag Check

Before the race, participants may check a bag with their warm-up/post-race gear. Runners may drop their bag directly in the bag check tent at the finish line (inside the food tent) or on the designated vehicle located at the Start Line, which will be transported to the bag check tent at the finish line. Your bib number has a tear off portion to use for checking your bag. Please use the race bag provided at packet pick-up. You may go to the bag check/pick-up tent after the race to retrieve your bag.

Split/mile markers

Each mile along the course will be marked with signs placed on the right side of the course. Clocks are available at the half-way point of the full marathon and the finish line. Runners must run under the timing antennas or they will not get a time.
