A great event (run and walk) for the whole family! Have you ever wanted to be on the St Paul Saints field? This is your chance! The runs start and finish on the Midway Stadium field and the course goes through the stadium area. You will even get a ticket for a game!
Race Has been Postponed to Saturday, April 27th
Our event has been our unofficial kick off of spring and to welcome the ?Running of the Pigs? to the ?Saints experience? at Midway Stadium. With the parking lot under a blanket of snow/ice, the field dangerously slick we have opted to wait a week. We look forward to welcoming all who have registered for the event ? NEXT Saturday, April 27. Refunds will not be provided. Additional youth run, 5K and Zer0K registrations are being accepted via http://saintsbaseball.com/community/5k/.?

A quarter-mile and half-mile youth run will be held prior to the 5K. Our large display clock will be visible at the finish, but no times will be kept. Saints mascot Mudonna will lead a group stretch before the run. Each participant in the youth run will receive a gift.
The course is out-and-back on smooth flat new pavement on Energy Park Dr, starting/finishing at Midway Stadium (just west of Snelling in St. Paul). Before you say ?that sounds a little boring.? remember that?s our neighborhood you?re talking about! Don?t worry, we?ll add a few special twists to make it interesting. The course is USATF certified for accuracy.
The Saints Zer0K is the ultimate race for non-racers. Sit back and relax in our Zer0K zone as runners sprint past you towards the finish line. You start and finish the Zer0K at the same time! Comfortable chairs and couches will be provided with snacks and beers. While waiting for the runners, a movie will play on the video board. Participants of the Zer0K will receive a t-shirt, a ticket to a Saints game and post event meal. Be a hero in Zer0K!
Parking is available in the parking lot west of the stadium. Please arrive early, because parking is not allowed on Energy Park Drive, and the road will be closed 15 minutes before the race!
