Marathon Relay at US Bank Stadium!
MDRA and Northstar Running duel in the 2019 Indoor Marathon Relay at US Bank Stadium! This is the first year MDRA will be participating in this race against the clock to run a marathon under 3 hours.
For those unfamiliar with this event, the marathon will begin at 5pm sharp (though only the first runners in the lineup will need to be there at race start) and will need to be completed by 8pm. With 61 laps to complete in under 3 hours, we are looking for a large team in order to break the laps up. Each person will run approximately 2-6 loops (~1-3 miles), and these loops run in a cycle (much like Ragnar Relay if you have done that. Loops are like legs, and are spread out over time).
This event is FREE to participate (other than the $3 stadium running entry fee). We are also looking for volunteers (photographer, timing assistant) as well if you are injured or otherwise unable to run!

If you would like to participate please see the Facebook event here and post what a recent 5k race time would be and which team you will be running on (Northstar or MDRA). We will be announcing the runner order shortly before the race event.
