Join us August 22, 2020 for the

36th Annual Healthy Human Race

The Healthy Human Race is pleased to share that we have been selected as the

2020 Minnesota RRCA Half Marathon State Championships. This marks our 3rd state or regional RRCA championship in the last 4 years.

Registration is now open

As of right now, our plan is to move forward with the Healthy Human Race, scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 22nd. However, given the nature of this pandemic, plans can change at any time. If we are unable to move forward with the race and cannot reschedule, one of our options is to convert to a virtual run.

 Sign up now before we fill up. We will have a 250 person limit for the half marathon and 150 person limit for the 5K. If something changes and we have to cancel we will have several options available.

We are meeting regularly to refine out COVID-19 race prep plan. While the race will not look like it has in years past, it will get you from the start to the finish line as safely as possible. We are not sure exactly what those changes will look like at this time, as this is a dynamic process in a state of flux. We will publish the guidelines a couple weeks prior to our event.

Updates will be shared as they occur via email, our Facebook site (, and our HHR website ( Feel free to also reach out to us directly with any questions or concerns.

We can’t wait until we can all step-up to the start line together. In the meantime, stay safe and keep running!

Trust this finds you all doing well and continuing into the best season of the year for running. I apologize for being delayed in getting the race photos to you. I left for Romania right after the race to coach the US 50K Ultramarathon Team at the 2019 world championships and just returned last night.

A very special thanks to Thom Woo, Wyatt Ryan, and Fred Sobottka for the time and talent in taking photos of the race at the finish line and along the course.
