About This Activity

Walk, jog or run along the beautiful Great River Ridge State Trail to raise money for the Alzheimer's Association of Minnesota and North Dakota.  The blacktop surface course is an easy, flat, out-and-back that will take you along the outer edge of Elgin through some scenic countryside.  The race will start on Main Street of Elgin at the pavillion and sculpture park for the Trail and will loop past the soft ball fields, across County Road 2 to a half way point and back along the course.  This is a great course for beginners and  anyone who would like to make a PR in the 5k.  This is the second year for this event and we are proud to donate all proceeds to the Alzheimer's Association.
