August 30, 2018, Thursday - JDRF Stadium Challenge 2018 at Target Field

JDRF Stadium Challenge 2018

Come climb, run or walk with Team JDRF in the JDRF Stadium Challenge!

Team JDRF participants join in on the fun of the Stadium Challenge through stairs, sweat, music and most importantly, moments!  This is your moment to fundraise and help turn type one into type none! The JDRF Stadium challenge is a unique fitness challenge unlike any other event in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. There’s something for everyone at this event with three courses ranging from 1,000 steps to a 5KM walk/run.

1K: This course consists of approximately 1,000 steps around the lower deck of Target Field (The equivalent of roughly a 50-story skyscraper). This course will be timed but it will NOT be competitive. No finisher awards will be given out.

2K: This course consists of approximately 2,000 steps around the upper deck of Target Field (The equivalent of roughly a 100-story skyscraper). This course is timed AND competitive. Trophies will be given out to the top three men and women finishers for the following age groups: Under 17, 18-39, 40+.

5KM: This course is a flat course, roughly 8 times around the main concourse of Target Field, that participants may choose to walk, jog or run. This course will be timed but it will NOT be competitive. No finisher awards will be given out.

Whichever course you choose, be sure to join the after party on the Goose Island Deck. ALL participants will receive a light meal, the option to purchase beer and non-alcoholic beverages and a view of beautiful downtown Minneapolis.

When you join Team JDRF, we’re committed to supporting you with fundraising support before and throughout the event weekend. Know that you every step you take brings us closer to our finish line—a world without T1D.
