ClubRun Nah-ston

Join Club Run for the Nah-ston Marathon on Saturday, April 14th, 2018!

UPDATE: NAHSTON has been postponed due to the winter storm. Details on the new date will appear here and on Facebook.

Minnesota runners have always had to meet stringent requirements to run the famous race in Boston. Meet a qualifying time. Pay loads of money. Train through the winter. Figure out a complicated lottery system. Get to Massachusetts. And back.

Club Run feels that it’s time to give the people what they want: a loosely organized running event in April, in Minnesota, that you don’t have to pay for, that provides you the opportunity to run 26.2 miles, that’s free, and that’s fun.

Thus Club Run Presents: The Nah-Ston Marathon.
