Fitger’s 5K Run & Walk 2023
Venue: Fitger's Brewery Complex
The 34th annual Fitger’s 5K Run & Walk begins at the Fitger’s Brewery Complex and follows a 3.1-mile course through Downtown Duluth and along the shores of Lake Superior before returning to Fitger’s. The course is a USATF-certified, chip-timed course.
The entry fee is $40 before March 31 and $45 from April 1 to race day, and $15 for youth ages 12 and under. Net proceeds benefit the Young Athletes Foundation, a Grandma’s Marathon program that focuses on the promotion and development of youth athletics throughout Carlton, Cook, Douglas, Lake and St. Louis Counties.
To sign up, runners and walkers should log on to grandmasmarathon.com. The Fitger’s 5K registration process is conducted exclusively online.
This is the second race in the KP Challenge, named after the late Kevin Peterson. Participants commit to run three Grandma’s Marathon races, including the Saint Fennessy, Fitger’s 5K and Park Point 5-Miler. The challenge is designed to keep participants on a regular running schedule that supports the successful completion of longer distances.
