Run New Prague - Saturday, May 6, 2017

Half Marathon •  10K  •  5K  •  Kids Fun Run

Join us on May 6, 2017 for a great day of running, eating, shopping and having fun!  It's the 32nd Annual New Prague Half Marathon. 
(Note: This race is held in New Prague, MN USA; not Prague, Czech Republic) 

NEW THIS YEAR!  We have some exciting additions in 2017:

  • For the very first time ever, we will have a post run party in Memorial Park! Join us for good food, beverages, and celebration after you cross that finish line! 
  • RNP is now a 'broken marathon' series: a virtual race where age graded performances on the fastest two of three separate events are combined for overall order of finish. In essence, it is a 'marathon' that was done over two different races. We are grouped with the Mora Half Marathon and the Gandy Dancer Trail Half.

Plan to stay for the day after the run for a post race party and to enjoy all of New Prague's restaurants, bars, boutiques and shops.

Packet Pick-Up

Packet pick-up will take place on Friday, May 5 at the Memorial Park Concession Stand (400 Lexington Ave South) from 2:00 - 7:00 PM.  Packet pick-up resumes in Memorial Park on Saturday, May 6 at 6:30 AM.
