Fun run/walk with cookies and prizes. The route is around Como Lake twice starting near the pavillion. All participants will get cookies and can choose a cap or hero cape included in the registration. Free race photos will be available after the race. Prizes awarded to top finishers and there will be drawings for other prizes.
100% of profit from registrations goes to HeroSearch.org, a St. Paul nonprofit that makes it easier for you to donate items and make an impact in the community. Race will be timed but not chipped to allow more to go to charity. We are partnering with Cookie Cart because their cookies are awesome and their mission to empower youth is even more awesome. Additional cookies will be available at the race for purchase - 100% of profits from cookie sales go to Cookie Cart.
Because making an impact in our community is in our DNA, we are collecting donation items for local area youth experiencing homelessness - You will receive $5 off registration if you commit to bringing something. (See list of needs at HeroSearch.org Events /Cookie 5k page)
