Park Point 5-Miler

Run the point.

Enjoy a summer evening running on Duluth’s beautiful Park Point. The Park Point 5-Miler starts near the Park Point Pavilion in Duluth and participants run down Minnesota Avenue before finishing back near the Pavilion. A 2-mile walk and short races for children accompany the 5-mile run. Welcome to the 3rd of 3 KP Challenge races!

All net proceeds from the Park Point 5-Miler benefit the Young Athletes Foundation (YAF). The YAF was developed by Grandma’s Marathon 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.
