Komen Twin Cities Race for the Cure
Part of the largest 5K run/walk series in the world, this USATF certified course is very popular. The course runs around Edina’s beautiful Lake Cornelia and begins and ends near the Southdale Center.
Started to promote early detection of breast cancer, the Komen Race for the Cure is an emotionally charged event that attracts many first timers and recreational runners. First held in the Twin Cities in 1993, the race has grown from 2,500 runners to nearly 40,000 in recent years as runners take the time to celebrate, run and raise awareness on Mother's Day.
Held at the Southdale Center, The Susan G. Komen Twin Cities Race for the Cure once again promises to be one of the most popular races in all of Minneapolis. Join thousands of other runners on Mother's Day to raise funds, bring awareness, celebrate cancer survivorship and honor those who have lost their battle to the disease, while you run through a beautiful course. The course route will take participants on a 5K or 1K co-ed journey around beautiful Lake Cornelia in Edina, Minnesota. A glacial lake, Lake Cornelia is 246 acres of prestine wilderness that every runner will enjoy.
