Saturday June 10, 2023

We are thrilled to be back at the University of Minnesota campus for a second year of this scenic 5K course, cheered on by the crowd and the sounds of the Mill City Running race team pep band. Join us in-person for a great event and post-race party that includes custom frosted cookie "medals", Johnny Pops and fruit,  a finisher photo area, Karuna yoga and more! Bring the kiddos for a free half-mile run.
