SCHEELS is committed to help bring back Roosevelt Park!
Roosevelt Park is the largest park in Minot and provides many recreational opportunities for the Minot community. The park is home to a swimming pool and water slide, The Magic City Express, hiking and biking trails, a playground, beautiful gardens, fishing docks, and more. It is a favorite place for family picnics, concerts, community events, and weddings.
The flood of 2011 had a devastating effect on Minot's park system and Roosevelt was especially hard hit, leaving the community with few recreational opportunities. Recovery and restoration continue and the costs are very high.
The SCHEELS Twilight 5K Run/Walk & Kids Run is a fun way to help raise much needed dollars for Roosevelt Park in a family friendly environment. To add to the excitement of running at twilight, Glow Sticks will be given to all registered runners as well as race T-shirts and swag bags.
The race is professionally timed by Tortoise and Hare Timing using bib chips. Winners in all categories will be announced immediately following the 5K. Both races will begin and end in the park. Strollers are welcome. Runners will start at the front.
Water donated by Pepsi-Cola and fruit provided by Marketplace Foods will be available after the race.
