Directions and Maps
Flood Runners have three options for participation routes:
The Original Flood Run was down Highway 61 on the Minnesota side.
The Wisconsin side is the most popular side of the river, but if you don't like the traffic when you are coming from the north you can run the Minnesota side down and come back the Wisconsin side... the traffic will be going the other way.
Official Flood Run Merchandise Booth's are located at the start of the run at the Beach Bar, The No~Name Saloon in Prescott, The Nauti Hawg Bar in Diamond Bluff & in Maiden Rock Park. You can purchse Flood Run Benefit Wristbands, official run t-shirts, run hoodies, run hats, run gloves, run bandana's, Flood Run Pins new & old & more!
