Getting to Zumbro
There is no known / assigned / reliable physical address for the Zumbro Endurance Run race start / finish at the Zumbro Bottoms Management Unit West Assembly Area / Zumbro Bottoms Horse Campground West – in our experience using THIS GOOGLE MAPS LINK https://goo.gl/maps/ZNQ1of3cYec8x8fF8 will get you to the race start without issue but since the race takes place in a fairly remote area (with limited cell coverage once you are in the Zumbro River Valley), you should have a backup plan. Below you will find written directions from the Twin Cities / Minneapolis – St. Paul area of Minnesota, we suggest that you print these directions and bring them with you.
If the roads are dry and clear of ice and snow, feel free to follow the route Google Maps gives you. If there is any ice or snow on the roads be sure to take the route that brings you through the town of Theilman (avoiding the worst of the super steep gradients of the minimum maintenance gravel roads that lead info the management unit.) Please be very respectful of the town by driving very slowly through town.
Written Driving Directions to Race Start via Theilman:
• From the Twin Cities take Hwy 52 South to Zumbrota
• Take the 60 EAST (NOT West) exit toward Zumbro Falls and Wabasha

Alternate Route (and very scenic):
