Race Day Information

*There is no race day bib pick up

*Please review the MN RUN Series Race Rules

Instructions & schedule

Please carpool if you can because parking will be limited. See map below for parking and start location from Maple Grove High School. Plan to arrive 30 min before start time. 

There will not be a gear check. Please leave your gear in your car.

Please know your wave # and start time for race day and only race in your designated wave. This will ensure the race goes smoothly and that there is room on the trail for every one. The race is on paved trails around the Elm Creek Park Reserve and we will be sharing the trails with the public. It is important that runners run on the right and remain single file to avoid taking over the trail and to allow other people to pass.

7:00am - 8:00am Race starts. Runners will be released in waves according to pace. There is a 16 min per mile requirement.

When you show up to the race gather near your wave sign and when the time comes for your wave to start a volunteer will move it to the start corral and you will follow it. One runner will start every five seconds.
