About This Activity

You Can still Register!

Registration is available this Friday at Mill City Running 411 E Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis from 4-6 pm and Saturday morning (race day) from 7:30-8:45 at Boom Island Park, MN.

Historic Riverfront 5K Run/Walk will take you through historic Northeast Minneapolis, along the Mississippi River and over the Stone Arch Bridge. This is perfect time of year to see the fall colors and the beauty of the tree canopy, river, and cityscape.  Race starts/ends at Boom Island Park (700 Sibley Street NE)

Last year we gave out over $2,000 of prizes that were awarded to top finishers and drawings for all that register. 

This year, we have partnered with Mill City Museum to provide you highlights of the incredible history along the route as well as Buy One, Get One discount to the Mill City Museum for every person that registers.

Whether you participate as a timed chip runner or take a casual walk with your dog or baby stroller, this is a route that everyone enjoys.

Proceeds benefit neighborhood parks and activities in the St Anthony West Neighborhood, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Minneapolis, which includes the beautiful Boom Island, BF Nelson, and Dickman parks.  Learn more at stawno.org
