About This Activity

The Lake Region Run (formerly Athletic Republic Run) has been the lakes area premier half-marathon, half-marathon relay, 5K and 1-mile event since 2007. With race numbers increasing every year since it’s beginning, we’re expecting 1500 runners/walkers in 2014. The beautiful scenery of the Fergus Falls area, the variety of race lengths and ideal temperates in early June make the race a perfect fit for the casual runner/walker to the serious competitor who wants to tackle the challenging hills of the half-marathon course.

In 2012 the 2-person half marathon relay was a hit; a great event for those looking for something longer than a 5K, but not as long as a 1/2 marathon.

Proceeds benefit Lake Region Healthcare's Cancer Care and Research Center.

Area temperatures average between 76°F and 55°F in June, while rainfall amounts average about 3.75 inches for the month.

Trophies will be awarded to the top overall male and female while top three finishers in each age division will receive medals. All Half Marathon and Half Marathon Relay participants will also receive a medal.

The LR Run is a part of the NEW Fergus Falls Area Race Series! By registering for the LR Run, you are automatically entered in the race series at no additional charge!  For more information, please visit
