The 2016 September Minnesota Race Calendar
September in Minnesota is beautiful! The kids head back to school, the leaves begin changing colors, and the air gets a little cooler as it fills your lungs with each stride. Sometimes you even need an extra layer for those early morning runs.
September also marks a profound shift in many people’s running routines. If you’re gearing up for a fall marathon, your taper will begin soon and weekly miles decrease. If you didn’t get to race as much as you wanted over the summer, September can be a great time to run a bunch of shorter race distances before colder weather arrives.
As you start thinking about your fall running attire, consider registering for one of the below September races. Not only are there a bunch of great road races, but there are several off-road options as well. Want to take it easy and enjoy a local brew with a small running group instead? The MN Brewery Running Series has you covered.
The following featured events aren’t all September races, but great races we think you should checkout this summer and fall.
