July 18, 2018, Wednesday - Torchlight 5K

Time: 7:30pm

Torchlight 5K

Hennepin Avenue, from the Basilica of Saint Mary to the Mississippi Riverfront

Whether you are a dedicated runner or just someone who jogs from the couch to the fridge, the Life Time Torchlight 5k in Minneapolis is the fun run for everyone! Grab your family, friends and running shoes because the Torchlight 5k starts with a bang and ends with a brew. That’s right, Life Time Fitness’ legendary post-race party features musical entertainment and complimentary refreshments. Then take the NEW shuttle bus system back to the start area. It’s the party of the year that just happens to start with a run!

The Torchlight 5k starts near the historic Basilica of Saint Mary and follows the Aquatennial’s CenterPoint Energy Torchlight Parade route. The course offers up close views of the Guthrie, Gold Medal Park, the Mighty Mississippi, Stone Arch Bridge and St. Anthony Main. Sign up today at
