2021 Mora Half Marathon & 5K Race Information

Saturday, August 21, 2021

We are located in Mora, Minnesota 
Mora is an hour and a half drive north of the Twin Cities provides participants with a beautiful 13.1 mile run through the Kanabec County countryside and a good tune-up for the Twin Cities Marathon.

The Course:
Both 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.

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 at the finish and water stops may no longer be available.

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.
