The 2018 June Minnesota Race Calendar
June is a month filled with beloved Minnesota races including the classic Grandma’s Marathon. Even if you’re not a marathoner, there are plenty of races and distances to choose from all over our great state! Try your hand at a 5K or two to work on your speed, or shoot for a longer distance and maybe even complete your first half marathon.
Whatever the distance you go this spring, be sure to focus on proper running apparel, hydration, and suncare. Temperatures this time of year can vary wildly and it’s important to stay safe (and comfortable!)
Below is a list of all of our upcoming featured races, as well as everything you may want to look at in the month of June! Pick one as a tuneup, or use the next few weeks to go after a PR at a new distance.
