When Is The Park Point 5-Miler? Here Are Details With A Link Provided To Register
Registration is now open for northern Minnesota's oldest road race - the Park Point 5-Miler. This years race is the evening of July 20th. If you're already training for Grandmas Marathon weekend, run 5k's or want to make this a first organized run, I think you should totally go for it. It's a nice Friday evening and even though it's been warm and humid the past several years, there are friendly Park Point residents there to cheer you on and spray you with a hose.
I've enjoyed running this the past couple years, mostly because I was already in running shape from training from the half marathon. I never run year round, just when training for something and this race is close enough to Grandmas weekend that I can do it. Then I don't run again until Thanksgiving.
The the Park Point 5-miler is another race that benefits The Young Athletes Foundation, which I think is great. Here is the itinerary:
Park Point 5-Miler – Friday, July 20, 2012

6:15 p.m. – Two-mile walk
