62 Races you Should Run in June

Memorial day is a day Americans honor those who have served in the Armed Services. It’s a day filled with parades, potato salad, and picnics. Some Minnesotans go to the cabin, while others stay home and grill. For many, it also signals the first day of summer.

Since it seems we’ve skipped spring and are headed right into summer, you may not have your summer races lined up yet. Lisa Fenske, one of our new writers, compiled the list below. It highlights many of the exciting and challenging races in and around the Twin Cities this June. Lisa says, “Find a race that is near your home or venture out and try a course across town. No matter what you choose, you are bound to have a great time!
