Saturday, Aug. 17, 190 runners finished this year’s Mora Half Marathon and 5K race. While the number of runners were less than last year’s 249 runners, many participants were returning racers. 

New to this year’s event was a kids race down Union Street and a demonstration of a roller-ski race. Race organizers are considering adding a roller-ski race permanently, depending on feedback from racers. 

The Mora Half Marathon and 5K is part of the Mora Classic Series that includes the Snake River Canoe Race in May, the Mora Bike Tour in September and the Mora Vasaloppet Cross Country Ski Race in February. Classic Series information can be found at
