The Lake Region Run has been the lakes area premier event since 2007. The beautiful scenery of the Fergus Falls area, the variety of race lengths, and ideal temperates in early June make the race a perfect fit for the casual runner/walker to the serious competitor who wants to tackle the challenging hills of the half marathon course.
NEW IN 2020: The half marathon and half marathon relay will be replaced with a 10-mile and 10-mile relay! The 10-mile relay will be a 4 mile and 6 mile split. The exchange zone will be on the RTC campus near the previous exchange zone. If you want to up your 5k game, find a partner to relay with you!
Trophies will be awarded to the top overall male and female while top three finishers in each age division will receive an award. ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL RECEIVE A FINISHERS MEDAL!
You must be registered by May 22nd to be guaranteed a race t-shirt. Anyone who registers after May 22nd will receive a pair of Performance Fitsok Running Socks instead of a t-shirt. All youth 12 and under are guaranteed a t-shirt, however their t-shirt is not guaranteed to be available for pickup at the race if they register after May 22nd (in this case it will be mailed to you instead). All 10-mile and 10-mile Relay participants will also receive a set of custom bib magnets.
Proceeds benefit Lake Region Healthcare's Cancer Care and Research Center.
Area temperatures average between 55°F and 76°F in June, while rainfall amounts average about 3.75 inches for the month.
