List of races
The 2021 Lake Region live event will include the 10-mile, 10-mile relay, 5K & 1-mile events. Virtual races are offered for the 1-mile, 5k, and 10-mile events.
The 10-mile course that is highlighted by a number of Fergus Falls area attractions. The course takes runners around Lake Alice, past the Regional Treatment Center, around the M State campus, through Butterfly Park, and will meet up with the 5K on it's way back. A loop style course will certainly challenge even the most experienced runners and will start and finish at the Lake Region Healthcare Clinic.
The two-person 10-mile relay gives runners another distance option. The first leg is four miles and will exchange on campus of the Regional Treatment Center where the second leg is six miles. Runners can sign up in the male division, female division, or mixed gender division. Transportation will NOT be provided to and from the start and finish area. Please provide your own transportation. There is parking at the Otter Tail Community Services building near the exchange point (520 W Fir Ave).
Relay runners will be exchanging an ankle bracelet at the exchange zone (Regional Treatment Center). There will be timing mats to run over and then exchange. A porta pot and water will be available to runners.
Custom finisher medals are awarded to both members of the 10-mile relay team. Awards will be given to the first place team in the 10-mile relay for the men's division, women's division, and mixed division.
The 5k is a 3.1-mile race that is great for any and all types of runners and walkers! We will have average pace signs at the start of the race so that you are running or walking with others at about your same pace. Please line up near the closest to what you think you will finish to make the race friendly for all! This course is highlighted by running up Mill Street, around Lake Alice finishing at the Lake Region Healthcare Clinic.
The 1-mile race is geared toward younger children and family fun. The 1-mile course is an out and back course on Mill Street! Start time for this year is set for 8:20 a.m., which will allow parents to run with or watch their child in the 1-mile and still take part in the 5k.
Participation medals will be given to all 1-mile participants. The top male and female in the 1-mile will be awarded a medal.
Those participating in the combo run will race in both the 1-mile and 5k events. This allows for family members and friends to participate in the 1-mile with the children while also getting to race in the 5k! If you register for the combo run, you will be competing in the 5k event only. This means that although you get a time for the 1-mile, you are not eligible for awards. Combo run participants will receive the 5k run T-shirt and finisher medal. No 1-mile T-shirts will be given out for this event.
Children ages 12 and under will receive a 1-mile finisher medal and will be competing for their age group in the 5k but will not be eligible to win the top 1-mile medal.
