Go Big for the Littles!

I want you to achieve a new Personal Best while helping the kids that need it most!
With my Baby Backyard Ultra format you will be able to run farther, and have a great time doing it!
Not a runner? NABD. The format is good for walkers, joggers, and even your youngins on bikes.
ALL $ REGISTRATIONS $ go to Children's MN Cancer Fund.
Come with us on a journey of camaraderie, fresh air, and FUN!

We will begin at 6 am, on the nose, and we will start a 5K (3.1M).
Every hour, on the hour we will start another 5K, until we complete 50K!

As long as you can complete 5K in 60 minutes, you will be able to complete the 50K!

This is a Choose Your Own Adventure event as well.
You can come by at any time and run a 5K, or 10K, or swoop in to join us on the final victory lap that will bring us to 50K, whatever distance you want.
Knowing we're starting another 5K every hour 6am - 4pm, you'll be able to run the distance you want, at the time that best fits your day.

This is a no DNF event, so the distance you cover is up to you, we want to get you to your goal!
Let's Go Big for the Littles!
