Yup, Northfield is increasingly, nationally known for its quirky events, diverse recreation, historic downtown, and surrounding scenery. It’s all part of the annual Outlaw Run. Folks come from around the region on their iron horses to explore southern Minnesota, retracing the trail of the notorious James-Younger Gang, on a 120-mile scenic cruise.
