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!!!


Best Ever Goody Bags Right this Way!

Goody Bags

We’re getting ready to stuff our famous “best ever” goody bags!  Lots of fun surprises in the bags and on the course…

It’s not too late to register–you can even do it on Saturday morning.  Run starts at 8:30 a.m. so get to the North Mankato Taylor Library a bit early if you need to register.

Have we mentioned our post run activities???

Obstacle course for the kids, balloon twister, food, music and the ever-popular FREE chair massage!

Any proceeds from the race go to The Business on Belgrade Association for support of organizations such as Echo Food Shelf, Backpack Food Program, ALS Association, and Habitat for Humanity.
