Fitger’s 5K Run & Walk 2019
The 30th annual Fitger’s 5K Run & Walk begins at the Fitger’s Brewery Complex and heads east for an out-and-back route featuring London Road and lake views on South Street. The new course will be a USATF-certified, chip-timed course that will be utilized in 2019 and 2020 due to construction on Superior Street.
The entry fee is $35 in advance, $40 on race day, and $10 for children ages 6 to 14. Net proceeds benefit 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.
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 KP Challenge, named after the late Kevin Peterson. 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.
