Join the Boston Strong Minneapolis Run

Last Monday, the running community was rocked when bombs were detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Three lives were lost and nearly 200 others suffered injuries. Amidst this chaos and heartache, so many stories of bravery and hope have emerged. Although the suspects have been caught, many questions remain.

In a very small act of solidarity, Minneapolis Running, in partnership with run blogger Pavement Runner, is helping to organize a memorial run with over 100 other cities nation wide. The Boston Strong Minneapolis is taking place 7:00 am, Monday April 22. We will meet outside the Wilde Roast Cafe on St. Anthony main. One week after the horrific events, we run to honor those impacted by those events.

It will be very low key and informal. We encourage you to donate to the One Fund if you feel so inclined. We will not be taking a collection.

RSVP via Facebook, or just show up. Follow the run on Twitter at #BostonStrongMPLS. We hope to see you tomorrow.


We had approximately 25 people show up to run for Boston Strong Minneapolis and show their support of the tragic event. Fox96News, and WCCO showed up to cover our run.
