About This Activity

Start the 2018 year off with our



It's For A Great 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!



You can complete our race 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."  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!



No Access to Restrooms on Site - Please plan accordingly.

This is an Outdoor Event on New Year's Day in Minnesota. Run responsibly! Icy patches possible - all efforts to mark rough spots throughout the course will be made. Please know your own limits.
