Race Location

The 35th Annual MDRA 15k is one of Minnesota's few, distance certified, 15k courses. The MDRA 15k serves as the USATF Minnesota 15k Championship. Until 2006 the MDRA 15k was named the Minnesota Master's 15k, and served as the Master's (ages 40 and over) State Championship. Twice it hosted the National Masters Championships. In 2006 MDRA opened the race up to people of all ages, but still draws a very large master's audience. The MDRA 15k is run in Saint Paul, Minnesota along one of the more scenic courses in the Twin Cities metro area. The 15k distance serves as a great warm-up for the fall marathon season, and most people do not know that the 15k is 9.3 miles, just short of the more popular 10 mile distance. If you are getting ready for a fall marathon, the 15k serves as a good benchmark for your training.


The course is a loop course. The race will begin at Crosby Farm Park and run along the paths of Crosby Farm Park and Sheppard Road. The race will begin next to the marina on Crosby Farm Road and run east into the park, where participants will run a 1.5 mile loop, then will traveling along the larger outer loop which includes Crosby Farm Park and Sheppard Road. The course enters the registration area at 8.5 miles, and then will conclude with a smaller 1 mile loop. The course is USATF certified.
