September 2016 marks the 140th anniversary of the capture of the Younger Brothers gang outside of Madelia following the failed Northfield bank raid by the James-Younger gang in 1876.  This marked the beginning of the end of this type of lawlessness in the U.S. following the end of the Civil War. Following their capture, and much to their surprise, the Younger Brothers were provided with medical attention and were treated humanely prior to being sent to Faribault for trial.  They had expected to be hung on the spot once they were captured. This will be the 20th Annual Younger Brothers Capture Event in Madelia.  We are planning on presenting a fun filled entertaining and informative event this year as we celebrate this milestone. A unique part of the Robbers on the Run Race is that it is led by a rider mounted on horseback rather than the normal "pace car".
