2023 Race Information

Welcome to the Gamehaven Lakeside Grind. This race is held at the Gamehaven Scout Reservation – a beautiful 265 acre camp and the Gamehaven Sports and Activities Park  – Rochester’s newest 460 acre regional park with a 42 acre lake. Gamehaven has been a popular site for Minnesota High School races the past 8 years. Trails are built and maintained by volunteer members of the Rochester Active Sports Club. New trails are being added each year.

Note:  The swimming pool restrooms near the start/finish will be open this year with changing areas, toilets, and sinks.
