Upcoming 5K race this spring (with a bake sale to boot)

Anyone looking to sneak in a quick 5K run this spring will have a local option.

Seth Rasmussen is organizing a 5K Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, April 10 to benefit the Blue Earth-Nicollet County Humane Society. The race will begin at 9:15 a.m. at the St. Peter Community Center, 600 South 5th Street. Check-in and race-day registration will begin at 8:30 a.m.

Registration for the race is $20. Race-day registration will be accepted, but it is recommended to sign up before March 30 to guarantee a free t-shirt. Registration forms can either be found here (I found out about it via Facebook. Thank you, Mankato Multisport Club) or at the St. Peter Community Center. Forms can be dropped off or mailed to the community center (St. Peter Rec Department; 600 S. 5th St., Suite 200; St. Peter, MN 56082) as well. Checks can be made payable to Seth Rasmussen.

No official times will be kept, but the top three finishers for men and women will be announced at the race's conclusion. There will also be a bake sale going on before and after the race to benefit the Harry Meyering Center. It is being hosted by Mallori Pherson.

For more information, contact Seth Rasmussen at 507-382-1041.
