Outdoor events in St. Paul
One great thing about the Twin Cities is the variety and frequency of charity walks and races. From short family fun runs to marathons, from 5ks to triathlons, it’s easy to be active and join in the excitement of an outdoor athletic event.
Como Park in St. Paul is a great location for a charity walk or fun run. It’s 1.6 miles around Lake Como, and on any given day you’ll see many runners, walkers and wheelers of all sorts enjoying the route. Black Bear Crossings Café & Banquet Center is a great starting point for an event venue in St. Paul.
Groups holding walking events or races need to first apply for a permit from the city of St. Paul—to download an application visit www.stpaul.gov. There are many upcoming events, including a Halloween Fearless 5k in October, a St. Patrick’s Irish Tradition 5k in March, a Mother’s Day 5k in May, and the Challenge Cancer 5k in July, just to name a few. There’s definitely a variety to choose from!
You can also join the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance 11th Annual Walk for Thought on September 22 and the Foundation for Suicide Prevention Walk on October 14 at Black Bear Crossings Café & Banquet Center!
