I ran this race in 2006 and was impressed by the organization and the volunteers and the race itself. It’s a somewhat challenging 5k, with the start and finish right around the Burnsville Town Square. When I ran the race in 2006 the organizers included a nice touch when runners would come back into the town square. An announcer proclaimed “here comes number 212.”
The post-race festivities were very nice, with awards presented indoors (very nice depending upon the weather conditions).
