On Saturday, August 1st, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities will be hosting its most exhilarating event of the year, the Big Little 5K, sponsored by SNAP Fitness! Held at the picturesque Fort Snelling State Park, runners and walkers will enjoy getting in a bit of exercise and checking out the sights and sounds of what makes Minnesota great! From river views to wildlife, there’s a little something for everybody at this beautiful park.
Registration will begin bright and early at 8:30 a.m., where runners and walkers will receive their race shirt (included in the registration price) and any other additional information they may need. From there, participants are invited to stretch, hydrate, and enjoy the surroundings, all while meeting other folks who share an interest in mentoring and making a difference in a child’s life.
Once 9:30 a.m. rolls around, the race will begin! Racers will run/walk around the scenic trails and at the finish line is the Annual Big Brothers Big Sisters Picnic! Once they’ve cooled down, all participants are invited to join in on the fun which will include State Fair themed- treats from food trucks, carnival games, a petting zoo and more! Looking to stay active throughout the day? Load the bicycles up and hit the trails, or pack a swimsuit and some sunscreen and splash around in the Lifeguarded areas of the beach. The Annual Picnic begins at 10:30am and ends at 1:30pm.
