Race Information

This is a fundraiser in honor of Charlene Barron, a 9-time ironman finisher who passed away due to a traumatic brain injury on a training ride. Charlene loved her dogs and they were her constant running companions for years. Charlene's family and friends have chosen to honor her memory by having a 5k dog run at baker park.

100% of proceeds will support the research of Dr. Uzma Samadani and the neurotrauma research lab at the University of Minnesota. Everyone with or without a four-legged friend is encouraged to participate and enjoy the park, outdoor exercise and raising money for a unique cause.
