All proceeds go to The Shriner’s Children’s Hospitals. If this race has to be done as a virtual event we are still charging for the race. Entry fees are non refundable.

It’s a scenic loop of Bloomington including the Lake Side golf course and some great houses. The event begins and ends in the Tentac parking lot where there is a DJ and great food and prizes. It is timed by It’s Race Time and there are awards for the top 3 finishers in all age groups both male and female. It’s an amazing collaboration of so many businesses and residents getting together to raise money for The Shriner’s Children’s Hospitals.

This is the 6th year for this amazing and fun event. I do not know how to attach links and files so please call me for details and perhaps someone can assist with this. I appreciate it.

We hope to move forward with this event as planned. Thank you for your support.
