Speedy Eity Run/Walk
Previously known as the Firecracker 5K/1-Mile Run/Walk, the Speedy Eity is hosted by Dr. Eitrheim’s family and friends, and co-sponsored by Mayo Clinic Health System. Funds raised will be used for local community programs.
Includes 1,4 and 7-mile run/walks. The new 4- and 7-mile courses will follow the trail that goes over the Red Cedar River below the I-94 bridge. Participants can register for more than one event. The 7-mile registration begins at 7 a.m.; subsequent races follow. Go to active.com and search Speedy Eity to see the full schedule of events. A free Kids Fun Run, geared toward youth ages 10 and younger, will be held after the races.
Fun activities for the entire family, including kubb and a live DJ, as well as a food booth.
Held in early-July.
