Group Run Options

For all you Twin Cities metro area runners, here are a couple of group run options.

Option #1: The Stillwater Marathon offers "on-course training runs of 6.5, 12.5 and 20 miles (with water and pace leaders)" with the next run scheduled for Saturday May 8.  The training runs are free, but you do need to register on-line in advance.  Click here to register.  This link includes starting time information, meeting place information, and route information.

The Stillwater Marathon itself will take place Sunday May, 30th.

Cool fact about the Stillwater Marathon: they are also having a 20 mile race in conjunction with the marathon.  Kind of a neat way to get that 20 miler in for all you late spring, early summer marathoners.

Option #2: Team Ortho is hosting a run this Saturday, May 1, for the Minneapolis Marathon.  This run is also free.  There are two routes planned: ten miles and 16 miles (with the option of tacking two miles on at the end).  Both routes have supplied water stops along the way.  The bulk of the run is on the Minneapolis Marathon.  Click here for starting time information, meeting place information, and route information.

The Minneapolis Marathon is scheduled for Sunday June 6.
