Run for fun at Lumberjack Laps
The fifth annual Lumberjack Laps is set to start at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 10, at the Cloquet High School outdoor track. Check-in and same day registration will run from 8:45-9:45 a.m. that morning. Pre-race check-in is 3-4 p.m. Friday, May 9, at Washington Elementary School. Rain date is Sunday, May 11, with races starting at noon.
The races are run around the track at Cloquet High School, according to age groups. Races vary in length from a 100-yard dash for ages 4 and younger, a quarter mile for ages 5-8, a half mile for 9- to 12-year olds. Anyone 12 and younger can compete in the Lumberjack Mile; folks 13 and older may also enter the Legacy Mile walk/run. Back for a second year is the Age to Age Family Fun Mile, which is a relay race. Extended family members can put together a team of four to run in a non-competitive, one-mile relay race. Teams must consist of at least two participants age 16 and younger.
Lumberjack Laps serves as a fundraiser for Washington Elementary.
