38th ANNUAL MDRA RON DAWS 25K (15.53 mi.)

This race commemorates 1968 Olympic marathoner Ron Daws. Daws, a ’60’s/’70’s Minnesota running icon, trained over this same course. The race was renamed as a memorial to Daws in 1993, the year after his untimely death. The course runs over hilly terrain to the south and west of Hopkins. The race, begun in 1979, and now in its fourth decade, has proved to be a stiff challenge at a middle distance for those training for Boston or other spring marathons or who are otherwise looking for a testing workout.
