The proceeds from this 5k Run / Walk directly support the K-9 units of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Duluth Police Department, Hermantown Police Department, St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office and Superior Police Department. Participate in this event and meet for yourself some of our local K-9s.
This fundraiser is a part trails, part road event with the start/finish at the Lester Park Pavilion. It is an out and back, starting with an enjoyable warmup on the Lester Park nordic trails before transitioning onto Seven Bridges Road. The course has some moderate hills, but in general is considered relatively level and all portions are stable running surfaces. The scenery is like no other event in the area, so come enjoy the fun and help our local K-9 units with your support!
Although this event is in support of dogs, please leave yours at home this time and come enjoy the K-9s. This is a great opportunity to engage the little ones. Strollers are welcomed in the Run/Walk. So strap in those kids and come on down. And for those kids that want to run, 12 and under can run for free.
Only paid registrants will receive a free race shirt when you pick up your race packet. To guarantee a race shirt, make sure to sign up before 09/28/17. Any left over shirts after packet pickup, if we have any, will be for sale first come first serve as inventory is available.
Race packet pickup is October 7 from 7-8:45am at the Lester Park pavilion.
