Complete your favorite 3-mile distance any time/anywhere between Aug. 3 and Aug. 9 and enter your run or walk time on the events website. You will receive a completion certificate that could be used for a make-your-own Finisher’s T-shirt logo.
The individual registration fee is $20 plus processing and family registration is $40 plus processing.

The Suburban Ramsey Emergency Coalition, a partnership of 15 local service clubs and community foundations, has already raised over $60,000 and awarded eight grants to local non-profit groups totaling $50,000. The grants address food insecurity and housing instability in our community. These needs are continuing and donations are urgently needed to provide assistance so that none of our neighbors are hungry or risk eviction, foreclosure or homelessness.
