The Claddagh Irish Pub & Restaurant @ 7890 Main St N Maple Grove, MN 55369 continues to be the address that will get us to the race site's start/finish alongside Arbor Lake, just behind the Claddagh. Note that the Claddagh Restaurant was permanently closed following the continuing & recurring lockdowns for indoor dining in MN in 2020. We all wait to see what restauranteur may someday reopen this facility with hospitality to all.
