Haulin’ Pollen 5k
August 21 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Registration is open for the inaugural ReNew Earth Running Haulin’ Pollen 5k! The race is on Saturday, August 21, 2021 at 8:00 a.m. in St. Paul. The 5k is the kickoff event for the Lower Phalen Creek Project Pollinator Festival! Proceeds from this race will benefit Indigenous land stewardship by supporting the mission of ReNew Earth Running and the work of Lower Phalen Creek Project, a Native-led organization which has restored and cares for Wakan Tipi (also known as Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary).
The PR friendly course starts at the top of Mounds Park. Runners will enjoy a generous downhill first mile before turning toward Swede Hollow. The course loops back for the final mile in Wakan Tipi, the sacred site that the proceeds of this race will go toward protecting.
So, get your family and best running friends together to run for Indigneous land stewardship. Registration can be found at www.renewearthrunning.org/haulin-pollen-5k. Register by July 23, 2021 to ensure that you get a t-shirt with the awesome race logo.
Thank you to our generous sponsors: Mill City Running, Kwe Law Firm, Gear Junkie, and Evergreen Trail Co.
