Fitger’s 5K Run & Walk 2017
The 28th annual Fitger’s 5K Run & Walk begins at the Fitger’s Brewery Complex and runs through Downtown Duluth on Superior Street into Canal Park, finishing back at Fitger’s. The award ceremony begins at 10:30 a.m. at Rex Bar in the basement of the Fitger’s building.
The Fitger’s 5K field is limited to the first 2,000 entrants. The entry fee is $30 plus a processing fee with all net proceeds benefiting the Young Athletes Foundation, a Grandma’s Marathon program that focuses on the promotion and development of youth athletics throughout Carlton, Cook, Douglas, Lake and St. Louis Counties. Since its inception in 1990, the YAF has contributed more than $860,000 to area nonprofit youth athletic organizations.
To sign up, runners and walkers should log on to grandmasmarathon.com. The Fitger’s 5K registration process is conducted exclusively online.
This is the second race in the 2017 KP Challenge. Participants commit to run three Grandma’s Marathon races, including the Saint Fennessy, Fitger’s 5K and Park Point 5-Miler. The challenge is designed to keep participants on a regular running schedule that supports the successful completion of longer distances.
