CHI St. Alexius Health Motivational Mile and 10K

You may have heard about the CHI St. Alexius Health 10K. We are now excited to announce the CHI St. Alexius Health Motivational Mile at the Bismarck Marathon! It’s not the longest course at the Bismarck Marathon, but the CHI St. Alexius Motivational Mile has participants taking some of the biggest steps toward achieving health goals. The CHI St. Alexius Motivational Mile will serve as a celebration of life for people who have overcome physical and mental obstacles and chose to get back on their feet striving for better health.

With the support of family members, friends and other onlookers, walkers are sure to feel a sense of accomplishment when they cross the finish line. The event is not limited to individuals with medical conditions.

The walk will circle back and end in Haaland Field as well effectively kicking off the 2019 Bismarck Marathon festivities. The BNSF Railway Kids Mini Marathon and new Kupper Suburu Bisbark 4k will follow on Friday night. On Saturday morning, all competitive races begin. See for more details.
