Park Point 5-Miler & 2-Mile Walk
July 14, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$30
Holding the crown as northern Minnesota’s oldest road race, the Park Point 5-Miler & 2-Mile Walk starts and finishes near the Park Point Pavilion in Duluth, MN. A picturesque course sandwiched between the open water of Lake Superior and the Duluth Harbor, this event offers a perfect mid-summer option for runners and walkers alike.
The 5-Miler is a more competitive running field but is now preceded by a 2-Mile Walk, which encourages people of all ages and abilities to come out and enjoy Duluth’s Park Point.
This is the last of three races involved in the annual KP Challenge, in which participants commit to three races throughout the spring and summer. The first two were the Saint Fennessy 4K and Fitger’s 5K, with the aim to help participants keep on a regular training schedule and consistently complete longer distance races.
Net proceeds from the event go to benefit the Young Athletes Foundation (YAF), the nonprofit arm of Grandma’s Marathon focused on helping the area’s youth develop healthy and active lifestyles. Since its inception in 1990, the YAF has donated more than $1 million to youth athletic and nonprofit organizations in a five-county region.
