History

The Lake Region Run has been the lakes area premier half-marathon, 5k and 1-mile event since 2007. To celebrate 10-years of Cancer Care in Fergus Falls we are replaced the half-marathon and half-marathon relay with a 10-mile and 10-mile relay in 2020. We've decided to keep the 10 mile distance going forward.

The beautiful scenery of the Fergus Falls area, the variety of race lengths and the temperate conditions in early June make the race a perfect fit for the casual runner or walker to the serious competitor who wants to tackle the challenging hills of the half-marathon course. Everyone can feel the camaraderie and community as they participate in the cause of raising money for the Cancer Care & Research Center while doing something good for their health.
