About This Activity
Start the 2017 year off with our
FRESH START 5K!
It's For A Cause!
Your goose bumps support:
EPWT's "Fresh Start Youth Scholarship "
The PROP Youth Scholarship Fund!
Prove you’re the “Hardy Minnesotan” the rest of the country talks about by joining the Eden Prairie Women of Today on New Year’s Day in our Fresh Start 5K. You’ll earn extra "Hardy Minnesotan" Points when you walk or run the 3.1 mile (or 1 mile option) trail around Purgatory Creek in Eden Prairie, no matter what the weather is - crazy cold, snowing, blowing, raining, or maybe even beautiful & sunny!
NEW THIS YEAR!
You can complete our race this year Virtually!
So if you're in a nice warm climate on New Year's Day and you'd like to show off by doing a race "in Minnesota," join in with us and we'll send you the T-Shirt and your race bib to display to all of your friends and family!
All of our Virtual Racers will be represented at our actual event on New Year's day by our "Surrogate Racer" - our EPWT Chapter President, Licia! She will wear a race bib for every virtual racer!
You can also opt to support this without having to do anything other than donate! See options on the registration page!
