WHAT: The Torchlight 5K Run, produced and presented by Life Time – Healthy Way of Life, is reigniting with a new 2019 course on Wednesday, July 24 as part of the 80th annual Aquatennial celebration in Minneapolis.
The Torchlight 5K, voted one of the best 5K races in the U.S. by BibRave 100, begins at Minneapolis Convention Center. This year, a new scenic course will give runners a chance to experience downtown Minneapolis, the Mississippi River and scenic views of West River Parkway before finishing at Boom Island.
Around 5,000 people of all ages and abilities are participating in the run. Whether you’re a dedicated runner or just someone who jogs from the couch to the fridge, the Life Time Torchlight Minneapolis 5K is fun for everyone! Grab your family, friends and running shoes because this event starts with a bang and ends with a brew. That’s right, a legendary post-race after party features musical entertainment from Minnesota’s Brat Pack Radio and complimentary refreshments. It’s the party of the year that just happens to start with a run!
