About This Activity

Come celebrate Labor Day weekend with some of your local progressive friends for a bit of exercise (and banking some burned calories before heading off to the fair). The Southwest 5k Run/Walk is an event hosted by the DFL SD48 organization, whose mission is to elect progressives to local and statewide offices in Eden Prairie and Minnetonka. This fundraising effort essential to ensuing that we continue to put the pressure on the MN GOP and continue the fantastic momentum we have generated in SD48.

With a beautiful course around Purgatory Creek Park, we expect an exciting race for those wishing to push themselves to the limit, with age group awards for both males and females. For those looking for a less intense experience, we do not have a cutoff, so take as much time as you would like. And for those who are unable to attend or unable to run, we also offer Virtual Runners!

Virtual Runners: What are virtual runners? We understand that you may want to participate in some way, but due to geographic, scheduling, or physical limitations, you might not be able to. So sign up as a Virtual Runner, and run, walk, dance, do yoga, or just be active that morning and have an official Southwest 5k Run/Walk shirt mailed to you and help support this great cause. (You register at the same link)

And speaking of shirts, every participant will receive a commemorative race shirt if you register by August 5th.

So join us for our quaint run around Purgatory Creek Park with some friends, celebrate labor, and help a great progressive cause!
