Downtown Duluth Sidewalk Days 2016
Superior Street shuts down to traffic from Lake Avenue to Fourth Avenue East for three days of sidewalk shopping, food, entertainment and fun for the kids right in the heart of the city. Sidewalk Days run July 13-15.
Special events on day one include the Sidewalk Shuffle 5K at noon and the Classic Car Show & Harley Revue from 5 to 8 p.m.
The Duluth YMCA’s Sidewalk Shuffle 5K Run & Walk begins at 12:10 p.m. next to the Endion Station. Runners will shuffle up the Lakewalk toward Leif Erickson to a turn-around point just past the park and back toward the finish line at Endion Station.
Proceeds benefit the Annual Support Campaign for scholarships to ensure the Y never turns anyone away due to an inability to pay for memberships or programs.
The Y challenges Twin Port businesses to encourage healthy activities for their employees by signing up a team of up to five participants for the 5k. This year, there are over 70 teams coming from over 26 businesses in the area.
It is a lunch-hour race with showers available afterward for free at the Y. Individuals age 6 and older, family teams, co-ed teams, male and female teams are all encouraged to participate.
Registration ends at 11:45 a.m. race day. To register, visit the Duluth YMCA or call 218-722-4745 x133 or visit duluthymca.org/sidewalkshuffle.
