Running in the Twin Cities – Minneapolis and St. Paul

I’ve run in two places in the Twin Cities. One was in the area of the Stone Arch Bridge, Minneapolis and the other were the trails at the Crosby Farm Park in St. Paul. Each run happened on different trips and I choose each area based on its proximity to where I was visiting in the Twin Cities.

The Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis - the Twin CitiesThe Stone Arch Bridge area is located near downtown Minneapolis and the bridge crosses the Mississippi River.  Runners can also run up and down along the side of the river for a scenic run in a metropolitan setting.

The bridge is located near Target Center, where the NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves play, and near Target Field, where the Minnesota Twins play their home games in Major League Baseball. If you are in town for a game at one of those locations, this might be the place to go on a run. If you don’t run, this area is also nice for a leisurely walk.

Running on the west side of the Mississippi River is a bit hilly at times but also very scenic. Portable toilets from time to time are also appreciated.

Crosby Park Farm, St. Paul - Twin CitiesThe Crosby Farm Park is located in St. Paul near the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Despite its proximity my 35-minute run around the park’s two lakes was not disturbed by any nearby airplane noise.

The run through the park is very quiet and during a warm October 2014 afternoon I only ran across a handful of people.

To complete a circular run, which I prefer over out-and-backs, I had to run along a four-lane road. That sounds busy, but since I was out on my run on a Saturday, it really wasn’t that busy or too loud. The path along the road also was somewhat scenic and inviting for my run.

I’m not sure what would bring you to this area of the Twin Cities – other than running at the farm – but I was in the neighborhood due to a speaking engagement at the Minnesota Blogger Conference, which was held at St. Catherine’s University (St. Kate’s) in October 2014. Even if you are driving to the area, parking was a breeze with plenty of spots at the farm.
