2017 Historic Riverfront 5K Run/Walk


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)

Prizes are awarded to top finishers as well as prize drawings for all that register and attend.

We have partnered with Mill City Museum to provide highlights of the incredible history along the route as well as Kramarczuk's to treat you to their famous brats when at the finish line. 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
