It’s a fun summer tradition that generally has taken place on a warm evening, so with another winter storm headed our way I think it’s a perfect time to announce that registration is now open for northern Minnesota’s oldest road race – the 42nd annual Park Point 5-Miler scheduled for 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

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

The Park Point 5-Miler is sponsored by Sam’s Club, Texas Roadhouse, Toyota, Anytime Fitness, Carlson Orthodontics, City of Duluth, Duluth News Tribune, Duluth Running Company, ESPN Radio 560 WEBC, Fitger’s, Great Clips, Great Harvest Bread, Integrity Health Network, KDLH3, maurices, Minnesota Power, St. Luke’s and Unum.
