The Eugene Curnow Trail Marathon is run over rough woodland trails on a point-to-point course from the Lake Superior Zoo near Duluth, MN to Carlton. The course encompasses one leg of the Minnesota Voyageur Trail Ultramarathon, plus a bit extra to equal 26.2 miles. Scenic views of Duluth, MN, St. Louis Bay of Lake Superior, the St. Louis River, Jay Cooke State Park and the famous Power Lines. A nice introduction to the course for those considering the Voyageur, or just a fun run through the woods for those looking for a challenge.

Formerly known as the Half-Voyageur Trail Marathon, the race was renamed in 2013 in honor of its irrepressible founder – area trail and ultramarathon running legend, Eugene Curnow. Gene’s energy, enthusiasm and volunteer spirit played a significant role in the success and growth of the Minnesota Voyageur 50 Mile, the sport of trail and ultra-running, and the northland running community.
