The Minnesota Distance Running Association is now Run Minnesota.

2021 marks our 60th anniversary! The Minnesota Distance Running Association was the first running organization in the state and the eighth in the country. It is the foundation on which Minnesota’s robust running community has been built.

A lot has changed in the last 60 years, and we, like many organizations, find ourselves at a crossroads. To honor MDRA’s pioneering legacy and to position us to be around for another 60 years, we’re changing our name to Run Minnesota! 

Learn more about our new name and rebrand below and be on the lookout for exciting new things to come from Run Minnesota. 

Here for the long run.
