About This Activity

The Delta Scholarship Fund's 5th Annual 5K Run and Walk will loop through the beautiful greenspace of Veteran's Park where things are taking off! This 5K event will culminate with Delta’s Annual ‘Employee' Block Party.

The Delta Scholarship Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization providing educational scholarships to employees of Delta Air Lines and their eligible dependents worldwide for the opportunity to pursue higher education. $1 Million in scholarships are being awarded for the 2016-17 academic year.

Individuals and teams are encouraged to support the cause by participating in this annual event! This is a fundraising event for the Delta Scholarship Fund so get registered, create your team (if you choose), and invite family, friends and colleagues to get started now and show your team spirit! Separate Spirit awards will be given to the team with most registered runners (including ghost runners) and most overall Delta Team Spirit at the event. The theme of the event this year is Superhero! Notify delta5kmsp@gmail.com by June 1 if you need a separate area for your team to set up and decorate for Delta Team Spirit competition!

Event details and schedule

The 5K will begin at 8:00 a.m. at Veteran's Park located at 6335 Portland Ave, Richfield, MN 55423. Check In for the race will begin at 7:00 a.m. at marked tables. Please bring a photo ID to check in.

Parking at Veteran's Park will be extremely limited. Please secure a reservation on the Delta shuttle by emailing your name and number of guests to delta5kmsp@gmail.com. The Delta shuttle will pick up passengers in the North Lot of Delta's Building C where parking is available. The shuttle schedule will be posted on the 2016 Block Party page of Deltanet. If the shuttle is not an option, carpooling is strongly recommended.

Due to low participation in past years, MSP will not host a Family Fun Run this year but young children are encouraged to attend and cheer runners on. There is no age minimum to enter the 5K Run/Walk so parents are encouraged to use their best judgement.

All race participants will receive a swag bag and t-shirt. Grand Prize winner categories include one overall female and one overall male winner. In the event of a race tie, one winner will be randomly selected from all winners in each race category. Grand Prize Winners will receive a Delta Air Lines round-trip coach ticket*.

The 5K event registration fee is $30. A ghost runner option is available for those wanting to support this exciting event but who are unable to physically attend due to timing and scheduling conflicts. Those choosing this option will be provided a time and location to pick up race shirts closer to the event date (local pickup only). Please register by June 1 to ensure your selected t-shirt size will be available.

* Grand Prize Delta Airline tickets are valid for travel within the 48 states. Tickets will be valid for one year; restrictions apply. You must be 18 years of age or older to win tickets.
