The Richard A Hoska Midsummer Mile is a great way to spend a summer evening on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. The race is run in waves for women, men, and friends & family. The USATF certified mile course is two loops so it's easy to cheer on your friends. Race headquarters is O'Gara's at the Fair, where you will find packet pick-up at Dan Patch and Underwood.
The Midsummer Mile has produced some very fast times in the competitive waves on the fast, fairly flat course. The friends and family wave is a great opportunity for newer runners and walkers to participate in a low key, fun race.
We are proud to continue our tradition of encouraging families to participate by providing a special youth rate for children age 10-14.   We have also added a special child rate of $2 for all children age 9 and under.  Youth and Children in the Family Wave will all receive medals.  All in all it's a great time for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities.
The first wave begins at 6:30 p.m.


Due to the forecasted weather for Wednesday the post race party has been moved to O'Gara's home base on Snelling and Selby.  All race finishers will receive a coupon/voucher good for post race goodies at O'Gara's.

Please note that all entries to the race are final and no refunds will be given for any reason. If unforseeable circumstances arise that prevent you from attending we are happy to work with you on providing a credit for next year's race.
