MDRA Grand Prix

July 7, 2020

The Minnesota Distance Running Association (MDRA) has made the decision to cancel the 2020 MDRA Grand Prix due to the challenges surrounding the 2020 schedule of races as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Grand Prix rules on scoring.   Any discounts on future races that were in the 2020 GP schedule will no longer be applicable.  MDRA will honor the Grand Prix discounts for the Virtual Victory Races and the Virtual City of Lakes Half Marathon.

We appreciate your patience as we navigate this constantly changing environment and we look forward to the future when we can run together again.


The Minnesota Distance Running Association Grand Prix is an individual running competition that first started in 1978. The series consists of 14 races, in which MDRA Grand Prix registered runners compete for points toward year-end awards. Competition is conducted age groups for both male and females, 0-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84, 85+. Many of the Grand Prix races offer additional discounts to GP participants.
