About UsThanks for visiting the Minnesota Runner website. We’re a new website, starting in May 2011. While the site is new, we are old pros at providing online running information, having run the Northland Runner website (covering NE Minnesota, NW Wisconsin, Southern Ontario, and the Western UP of Michigan) since 2005.
Our purpose for starting this site is to provide comprehensive running information for the state of Minnesota and the surrounding area. We have spent the last year researching races and have compiled over 1100 events on our race calendar. Our search is ongoing, and we will continue to add races for your perusal as we discover them.
We are excited to offer our race calendar in a user-friendly format. You may browse races in your region of the state and you can search for races by a large number of criteria. You can even search for races within a certain number of miles of your zip code. Besides race listings, we also make an attempt to post the results of every race on our calendar, with the exception of triathlons, duathlons, and relays.
General InformationHave a question or comment about the website? We would love to hear from you. Our e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
RacesWe are happy to post any race with a running component in our coverage area. Besides pure running races, this includes snowshoe races, duathlons, triathlons, and all multi-component events that include running in some form. Our coverage area is the state of Minnesota and the surrounding area. The following information is required to post a race on our calendar: race name, date, city, state, location, distance, time, contact name, and contact e-mail or phone number. In addition, we can also post the fee, age groups, awards, last year's winners, last year's attendance, course records, notes, and the race website.
ResultsWe make an effort to post the results of all races we list on our website, with the exception of relays, duathlons, triathlons, and other multi-component events. If you would like to post your race's results, send them to email@example.com. Microsoft Excel spreadsheets work best, but any electronic format will do.
