Official timing for the half marathon will end 3 hours and 15 minutes after the start (15 minute per mile pace). You are welcome to complete your race if you are on the course past then; however, there will no longer be a timer or water stops available.
Both the 5k and half marathon races start in downtown Mora, Minnesota. The Half Marathon course is all asphalt, with about 70 percent of the race being through a rural setting with several rolling hills. The 5K winds through the quaint town of Mora. Water/sport drink stations and portable toilets along the route support the races. The finish is at a lakeside park and picnic area.
The Mora Half Marathon has been hosting runners for over four decades. This event offers runners not only a Half marathon race, but 5K, and the opportunity to run as a team.
The Half Marathon and 5K, held every year on the third Saturday in August is also part of the Mora Classic and Mora Motion Series.
The race is organized by a local volunteer committee.
Your timing chip is located on the back of your bib. Please keep this intact by not removing it or crumbling your bib. Your bib should be attached to the front of your shirt or shorts for easy reading at the finish.
Strollers are allowed; however, we ask that you start at the back of the starting line.
We do not offer gear bags because of the close proximity of the start, finish, and parking.
