The June 2017 Minnesota Race Guide!
June is a month filled with beloved Minnesota races including the classic Grandma’s Marathon. But if you’re not in marathon shape, don’t worry you don’t need to run a marathon to be a runner!
There are plenty of races and distances to choose from all over our great state in the month June. 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.
How fast do you think you could race just one mile? Find out on May 11 as you light up the streets of downtown Minneapolis with your pure speed! Stay late to watch the elite races too for a whole evening of fun.
The Med City Marathon offers a great course and community support, plus one heck of a post-race party! Try your hand at the 5K, marathon relay, half marathon, or 20 Mile race.
Grandma’s Marathon is coming up fast! If you’re not in marathon shape, check out one of their other fun weekend events including a 5K, half marathon, and youth races.
Get a summer race on your schedule now by registering for the Red, White & Boom! TC Half Marathon, relay & 5K on July 4.
The Great Inflatable Race is the perfect summer event for the whole family. Leave your PR pants at home and get ready to run, jump, and bounce through the 1.5-3 mile course filled with inflatable obstacles!
Now in its 15th year, the Urban Wildland Half Marathon & 5K has funded the 45-year environmental education partnership between Wood Lake Nature Center and Richfield Public Schools. The flat, fast courses wind through shaded residential neighborhoods and through three natural areas.
