This annual event is a fun, family-friendly 5K & 10K run/walk to support the more than 8,200 athletes of Special Olympics Minnesota.
Your support helps to provide year-round sports training and competition to athletes across the state. Invite your friends and family to join you for a morning of fun and exercise as you support a great cause and enjoy the beautiful scenery this urban area offers.
It’s open to all ages and ability levels — walk or run at your own pace. The 5K participation fee is $30; the 10K fee is $35. Online registration will close on Sept. 21 at 11 p.m. Participants may register at the pre-registration and day-of registration; fees will increase to $35 for the 5K and $40 for the 10K. Participants will receive a moisture-wicking event T-shirt.
