To celebrate the 10th anniversary of this event, we’re taking things to the next level! Join us on Thursday, September 14 for the BEST.NIGHT.EVER! Starting at 4 p.m., food, beer, games and music will be available at Boom Island Park, with our traditional chip timed 5K kicking off at 6 p.m.

This annual event is a fun, family-friendly 5K run/walk to support the more than 8,200 athletes of Special Olympics Minnesota.

Your support helps to provide year-round sports training and competition to athletes across the state. Invite your friends and family to join you for an evening of fun and exercise as you support a great cause and enjoy the beautiful scenery this urban area offers.

It’s open to all ages and ability levels—walk or run at your own pace. The 5K participation fee is $35, with walk up registration increasing to $40. Participants will receive a moisture-wicking event T-shirt.

Free parking, provided by the Minneapolis Parks Police, is available at Boom Island Park. Space is limited, so carpool if possible! There is additional parking available on surrounding streets.

Children 5 and under are FREE if pushed in a stroller, buggy or carried by an adult. Child does not receive a shirt and is not eligible to win an award. You will not need to register the child.

Raise additional money for Special Olympics Minnesota and earn incentives along the way!
