The 25th Annual Grandpa’s Run for the Walleye will be held on the morning of Saturday, July 2nd, the same day as the fireworks over Cross Lake.  Due to road construction closing streets normally used for the race, the 2022 5K race may be on an alternative course rather than the certified course.   As in the past, the 5K race will be professionally chip timed.  The 10K race will return to our event in 2023, once road construction is completed.  

The Saturday, July 2nd schedule is as follows:

  • 7:00 AM to 8:15 AM.  Race Day registration and Packet Pickup
  • 8:30 AM.  5K Race Start
  • 9:30 AM.  5K Awards Ceremony
  • 9:45 AM.  Kids Sunfish Dash (up to 10 years old). 

Note:  Due to Road Construction and detours, please plan to arrive early.

Participants can pick up race packets and sign up, if not done previously online, between 4 PM and 6 PM, Friday afternoon, July 1st at the Community Center.  The cost of registration for the 5K is $30 before June 22; or $35 June 22 through Race Day.  The registration fee for the Kids Sunfish Dash is $8.  All 5K registrants prior to June 22nd will be guaranteed their choice of a long or short-sleeved performance shirt.  Credit Cards will be accepted.
