Get your green on and dash through Hermantown for this St. Patrick’s Day-themed race that will be fun for the whole family! This festive 4K leads you to the finish line positioned outside of Skyline Social & Games – steps away from endless entertainment, music, and tasty beverages! There will be something for everyone! Welcome to the 1st of 3 KP Challenge races.
