Park Point 5-Miler and 2-Mile Walk 2022
The 51st annual Park Point 5-Miler is northern Minnesota’s oldest road race. Races start near the Park Point Pavilion in Duluth and participants run down Minnesota Avenue before finishing back near the pavilion. Participants have the choice of a 5-mile run or a 2-mile walk.
There are also Kids’ Races again this year, which are free and open to ages 12 and under. The course is approximately 150-meters, and the kids’ races start an hour before the big event at 5:30 p.m.
The Park Point 5-Miler is part of the KP Challenge series where participants commit to run three Young Athletes Foundation races, including the Saint Fennessy 4K, Fitger’s 5K and Park Point 5-Miler. Net proceeds benefit the Young Athletes Foundation, a Grandma’s Marathon program focused on the promotion and development of youth athletics.
