Winter 5k Race Series Rochester, MN 2014
Triton Events is proud to welcome and host the very first Rochester, MN 5k race series.  Not only is Rochester, MN fitting for a race series, but to do it in the Winter offers even more challenge and excitement!  

This is not your average 5k series.  There are big prizes to be won at this series.  How BIG? How about a prize purse of over $4,000!  There will be 11 different age groups (male & female). Each age groups 1st place prize is any pair of Asics shoes valued up to $160 from our major sponsor TerraLoco. 2nd place age group prizes will be a $60 gift card from Appolo Liquors (21 and over only) under 21 will be a $60 gift card and 3rd place is a $25 gift card from Rochester Cycling.

Yes, it will be a cold run, but be assured that all of our runs will end in the warmth of Twigs Tavern & Grille that is just a short walk from the race venue for all post race activities with food and drinks.  Each racer who presents their tear off portion of their bib at Twigs will receive a free green bean fritti appetizer.
Our post race activities after the New Years Eve race will take place in the Evergreen Banquet Room at the Centerstone Plaza Hotel connected to Twigs Tavern & Grille, where there will be a cash bar and free appetizers available.  We will end the post race activities of the New Years Eve race with age group awards and prizes.
