About This Activity

The 1st annual Thumbs Up High 5K race will begin in the Historic Downtown Elk River at McCoy's Irish Pub. The course will run along beautiful Lake Orono during the peak of autumn. There are no major hills and just a few curves as the course follows the lake and back to Downtown Elk River.  The event also includes a free t-shirt, wrist band, and post-race festival complete with live music, kids bounce houses, face-painting, crazy hair, many local vendors and a 1K run for the kiddos!
Let's join together to support mental health and suicide awareness in our community. Together we can #Run4MentalHealth!
