Race Info

The Randy's 5K Run/Walk takes place annually at 8:00 AM on Memorial Day, at Purgatory Creek Park in Eden Prairie. Participants have the option to create/join a team, or sign up as an individual. 

There are two routes for the race, one that is a USATF certified course, and another that is the alternate. The adjacent map shows the alternate path which has been used since 2014 due to the damage to the path west of the Friendship Bridge. There is now a boardwalk across the creek, but it's not suitable for a race.

Pre-race packet pickup is held the Saturday and Sunday, prior to the race, at TC Running Company in Eden Prairie. Race day pickup beginning at 7:00 AM at the Purgatory Creek Park Pavilion.

In 2017, over $2,000 in prizes were awarded, including $100 gift cards to TC Running Co to the top male and female finishers as well as age group prizes, random prizes, and grand prize drawings.

Randy's Run is a registered 501c3, so all donations are tax deductible.  A special thanks to Hydrapak, and all of our sponsors listed below.
