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. This race is stroller and animal-friendly!
