Benefiting the Mankato YMCA STRIDE program.

START: Sibley Park          END: Riverfront Park
A shuttle will be provided for participants before and after
the race
from Riverfront Park to Sibley Park if needed.

*Please note: STRIDE and Girls on the Run participants DO NOT need to register for the race. They will be pre-registered due to their current enrollment in their program.

The STRIDE program encourages boys to exhibit excellence in character in all aspects of their lives, make healthy choices and build confidence by leading them through a curriculum that incorporates character development and training for a 5K. The STRIDE 5K Challenge is a family-friendly event that encourages those of all ages to participate. This 5K fundraiser celebrates the hard work of both STRIDE and Girls on the Run participants. Proceeds raised will help provide scholarships for STRIDE participants and the continuation of the STRIDE program.
