Minneapolis Runs You Might Like - Februrary


Here are a few runs in the Minneapolis area that will help you get outside and enjoy the winter. Grab your snow shoes and winter running gear and get an early start on the running season. We also have an event for those of you who wish to run in your underwear!

Time: 9:30 am

Frozen Feet Night

Date: Feb 10, 2018
Time: 6:00 pm
Distances: 5k, 10k
Price: $25 - $35

Runners looking for a cold race in the dark, this is the event for you! The Frozen Feet Night Run is a winter trail run at Elm Creek Park in Maple Grove, Minnesota. Runners can choose between running a 5k or 10k. It’s a unique run because, while there are many 5k/10k, there are very few that are held on snow and trails, and even fewer held at night - so come along for a unique racing experience. There is a sister run, Frozen Feet, which takes place the following day in daylight.
