It's become a tradition for some, whether it's spectating, running, volunteering or even walking.  Why not be part of Minnesota's Oldest Road Race~the Park Point 5 Miler.  It's absolutely awesome running the Point, so picturesque and if you get too hot, you can just take a dip in Lake Superior!  Sign up SOON!

It's the 42nd annual and it's coming up Friday, July 19.  The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with youth races for children 14 and under, followed by a two-mile walk at 6:15 p.m., and then the five-mile feature race at 6:30 p.m. The pre-registration entry fee for the five-mile run and two-mile walk is $25, while race-day registration is $35. The youth races are free. Runners and walkers can register or find more information at either or

The net proceeds from the Park Point 5-Miler benefit the Young Athletes Foundation (YAF) which is a Grandma’s Marathon program focused on the promotion and development of youth athletics.
