Race Information

Join the annual Finish The Run event happening at Boom Island Park. Finish The Run was created to honor the life of David Forster - an elite marathon runner who collapsed and passed away suddenly while on a training run. Runners take the baton from David to create a movement to "Finish The Run."

All proceeds from the event will go towards a scholarship for a student of David's alma-mater, Hopkins High School, and to track athletes in Hopkins and Minneapolis who cannot afford the shoes they need to compete in their sport.

Beginner Runner Training Plans

Are you looking to become a runner for the first time? Coming back to running after a hiatus? Our friends at None to Run have created a gradual training plan for beginner runners!

In 3 workouts of 30 minutes or less per week, None to Run will take you from ground zero to running comfortably for 25 minutes straight.

None to Run is different from most beginner plans:

  • Focuses on running time. NOT distance or pace.
  • Includes simple strength and mobility workouts. No equipment required.
  • Progresses slowly to decrease the chances of getting injured.

If you can't currently run for more than 5-minutes straight without stopping to catch your breath, you're in the right place.

Thousands of people have already used the None to Run plan to finally become the runner they’ve always wanted to be.
