About This Activity

The 13th annual Menudo 5K Fun Run takes place on a scenic route in West St. Paul along Harriet Island. The Minnesota Chapter of the National Latino Peace Officer Association hosts this run along with the Little Jalapeno Pepper 1 Mile Fun Run for those kids 10 and under. The funds raised from this event helps the Minnesota NLPOA give back to Latino students studying law enforcement.  Money is used in the form of scholarships for these students as well as helping less privileged families during the holidays. Help us give back. 

This event kicks off the Cinco De Mayo celebration happening in West St. Paul on Saturday, May 7, 2016.

Do you want to dress up and have fun while you run and possibly earn a great prize in the process? This year we will be awarding prizes to the best individual dressed in costume as well as the best group dressed in costume. For those more serious runners, we will be awarding medals to the top 3 female and top 3 male runners based on time.

Other Fun Stuff! All runners 21 and older get a free Beer or Bloody Mary from Joseph’s Grill after the run and the first 200 people registered get a coupon for a free car wash at the Downtowner Car Wash in St. Paul (a $15 value)
