Get a jump start on your 2022 spring training with the 33rd Annual 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.

All participants will receive a commemorative Fitger’s 5K long sleeve 1/4 zip shirt and a finisher medal.

IMPORTANT: Dogs and other pets are NOT ALLOWED on the Fitger’s 5K racecourse. For the safety of everyone involved, anyone who brings a pet on race day will not be allowed to participate.


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.
