MN Lakes 5K RUN

June 29 @ 5:00 pm7:00 pm

My name is Million Wolde, and my passion for running is twofold: I am not only a coach at Higher Ground Secondary Academy, but also a proud Olympic gold medalist in the 5K from the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Over the years, I have had the honor of guiding many individual runners towards reaching their peak potential.

With great pleasure, I invite your running club to partake in the inaugural “MN Lakes 5K Run.” This event, held on June 29, 2024, at Veterans Memorial Park in Richfield, MN, is not just about the race itself but also a convergence of culture, community, and the sport that unites us all.

As part of this special gathering, we will feature:

– Open participation for runners from various skill levels, celebrating the joy of running in all its forms.
– Appearances by esteemed athletes, offering motivation and inspiration.
– Vibrant entertainment including a traditional Coffee Ceremony and music by a Live DJ.
– Opportunities to engage with fellow runners and community members in a festive atmosphere.

In my dual role as an athlete and a coach, I’ve always believed in the power of community events like this to inspire, motivate, and bring people together. The “MN Lakes 5K Run” is a reflection of this belief—a platform where we not only push our limits but also celebrate our shared passions.
