Get a jump start on your spring training with the Fitger’s 5K. This 3.1-mile race starts near the historic Fitger’s building and takes participants through downtown Duluth and along the shores of Lake Superior before finishing back in front of the hotel & restaurant.


Net proceeds from the event go to benefit the Young Athletes Foundation (YAF), which was created in 1990 to assist with the promotion and development of healthy and active lifestyles for youth throughout Carlton, Cook, Douglas, Lake, and St. Louis Counties. Since its inception, the YAF has donated more than $1 million to the community’s youth athletic and recreational organizations.


The Fitger’s 5K is the second of three races in the annual KP Challenge. This three-race series allows participants to commit to three YAF races throughout the spring and summer and is designed to keep participants on a regular training schedule that supports the successful completion of longer distances.

The other races included in the KP Challenge are the Saint Fennessy 4K and Park Point 5-Miler.
