       MINNESOTA PACERS

New in 2015, the Minnesota Pacers Pace Team will run the race, providing several different pace groups.  Set a goal and determine your pace for this year's race.

RUNNER SHIRT
The runner shirt, made by Greenlayer Sports, is the Evolution SS, a microfiber, moisture-wicking shirt made with recycled materials, available in women's and unisex cuts. Shirts will be distributed at the finish line area.  Like last year, we will hold a poll to choose the shirt color.

 

    PROFESSIONAL RACE PHOTOS
Walker Athletic Photography will be the official Urban Wildland photographer again in 2015.  Runners may purchase professional race pictures after the event.

T-SHIRT TV APPEARANCE  Picture
Our race shirt from year five was worn by actor Charlie Day on the FX series, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Thanks, Charlie!
