Minnesota > New Prague Half Marathon, 10K, 5K & Fun Run
New Prague, MN • Saturday, May 10, 2014 • Course Map
Following a course with both moderately hilly stretches as well as plenty of flat spells, the New Prague Half Marathon & 5K takes runners on a circular loop course just south of town, featuring a starting and finish line at Memorial Park near the New Prague Golf Club. Run entirely along paved roads, this popular half marathon drew just more than 840 finishers in both races combined at its spring 2013 running.
Thanks in part to its long, straight stretches outside the city proper that are unencumbered by taller buildings, runners should be prepared for sometimes windy conditions on the course. Most runners elect to wear the standard runner's gear -- running shorts and shirt -- but pay attention to local weather conditions as the race approaches.
Headphones are not forbidden during the race, but organizers ask that you pay close attention to your surroundings if you choose to bring an iPod or other mp3 player with you during the race.
