Lots of races for the whole family!
The Drumstick Dash 10K is a great way to work up your Thanksgiving Day appetite. Two laps around Lake Harriet on a USATF Certified course. The race is chip timed by Mtec Results. Participants have a choice of receiving no shirt, a long sleeve shirt or a sweatshirt. There are some hills so count on a good appetite for fun. Register early to reserve your spot.
The Pi Run is the one lap option around Lake Harriet. Just a little more than 5K - 3.14159 miles - so you have room for a little more of your favorite Thanksgiving treat. The Pi Run has the same start line, start time, and finish line as the Drumstick Dash 10K. You just get to stop after one lap! The race is chip timed by Mtec Results. Participants have a choice of purchasing no shirt, a long sleeve shirt or a sweatshirt. Register early to reserve your spot.
The Cranberry Cruise One Mile is a fun run and a great warm-up to your Thanksgiving Day for $10 registration. Check your time by the clock at the finish! Participants in the One Mile have a choice to purchase a beanie for $10. Strollers are permitted in the Cranberry Cruise Mile.
