The Robbers on the Run Race is held in conjunction with Madelia's annual Community Celebration of the capture of the notorius Younger Brothers, part of the James-Younger gang which attempted to rob the Northfield, MN Bank in 1876. Jesse & Frank James escaped, but the Younger Brothers (Cole, Jim & Bob, along with Charlie Pitts) were captured near Madelia. 2016 is the 140th anniversary of the Capture of the Younger Brothers near Madelia following the failed Northfield bank robbery. This year's race will be lead by a horse and rider.
The course is a beautiful out and back course along Elm Creek in Rural Madilia. Part of the course is blacktop and part if gravel.
Medals will be given to the top three male and female finishers in each race. In addition, awards will be given to the top male and female in the following age categories: 19 & under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70+. Results will be posted on www.andersonraces.com
