Bookin’ a Family Event~

Last year was a great time and we are looking forward to May 19th, 2018!  We have so much planned to make this a great family event. Every registered runner or walker gets a T-shirt, a chance at the door prizes, and the best Goodie bag ever!  For the kids, we have a balloon artist, bounce house, free book, a make and take craft and face painting. Also, don’t forget about your race medal,  free chair massage and some snacks after the Walk/Run for everyone!

Register at. . .



Bookin’ on Belgrade 2017

Not only does every participant receive a Best Ever Goodie bag and every registered child a book at the 4th Annual Bookin’ on Belgrade Nearly 5K Family Fun Run (and walk) but there will be door prizes as well!

Yes, strollers and responsible pets (or do we mean responsible owners?!) are welcome on the run course.

Another one in the books…

Gorgeous day, friends and family, a stroll around beautiful lower North Mankato: PRICELESS!  First across the finish line this year was Tanner Wetzel from Maple Grove.  His prize?  Bragging rights for the coming year. 182 runners this year made the day extra fun!  (Don’t miss the shot of our State Representative Clark Johnson, bubble master extraordinaire!)

Thanks to our orange shirted volunteers and especially Jolly Corley for corralling them. Also many thanks to Business on Belgrade, The Orthopaedic & Fracture Clinic, and Mayo Clinic Health System for funding the day; food providers Cubs, Hy-Vee, Tandem Bagels, Caribou Coffee and Kwik Trip; door prize donators River Valley Running, Scheels, and Oboz Footwear.

Save the date for next year:  Saturday, June 2, 2017!!!
