Family Fun Downtown Elk River - 5th Annual McCoy's 5k!


Remember, the best part of this run is that it is FUN!  You can walk, bike, rollerblade, jog, run, slog, skip, hop, whatever you want to do to travel the course.  There are people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and fitness levels. Whatever type of human you are, you'll feel right at home.

Mark your calendars- McCoy’s Irish Pub in downtown Elk River will be hosting their 5th annual St. Patty’s day 5k. All of the proceeds for this race are given to CAER; the local food shelf in Elk River. McCoy’s 5k is a key component of CAER’s celebration of the MN Foodshare March Campaign. This 5k is a great way to involve the whole community, downtown businesses, and gives CAER a chance to meet all the wonderful people who have supported them!

The race will begin bright and early at 9am, the morning of March 12th (a Saturday for those who might use the work excuse). While the race doesn’t start until 9am, plan to arrive at 8am for check-in and same day registration. For those that do not want to come in at 8am the morning of the race, you may pick up your shirt and packet Friday the 11th at McCoy’s Irish Pub from 5-8pm!

Because it is the St. Patty’s day run, everyone is encouraged to dress up in fun St. Patrick’s day attire! All racers upon completing the race will be congratulated with a complimentary beer or soda at McCoy’s after! Stick around later because CAER will have a table to donate a non-perishable food which enters you into a prize drawing; last year we raised over $7,600, lets see how much more we can raise this year!
