Last year at this time we were looking forward to the return of the Midnight Sun Midnight Run in 2021, unfortunately, we will have to take another year off. Minnesota Department of Health COVID Mitigation recommendations for returning to racing are very restrictive. Due to the width, out and back course set up and the time of our races, it is extremely hard to comply with recommendations and county requirements. At this point we will have to forgo planning of the 2021 Midnight Run. If recommendations and requirements change in the next 4 weeks, we still have time to re-evaluate and move forward with planning. Stay tuned.
We know things will eventually get better and we look forward to celebrating the 15th annual Midnight Sun Midnight Run on Friday night, June 24th, 2022.
Get outside, get moving and make a great day happen.
The Midnight Sun Midnight Run celebrates the arrival of Summer in Duluth, Minnesota. Long days and warm nights are welcomed after a long winter and a spring that never ends.
The race, in it's 15 year is always held the Friday after Grandma's Marathon weekend. Some years it is on the Solstice, which is an added bonus. We will have to wait until 2022 to celebrate our 15th year.
This year make personal plans to spend the day or afternoon outside, enjoying the warmth and the long days we all cherish.
Until we see you in 2022, stay healthy, happy and keep your body moving.
