10K, 5K and Fun Run

White Bear Lake, MN

Most of us are extremely fortunate.  On Thanksgiving Day, we get to sit down to a nice meal, surrounded by friends and family.

With the economic hardships over the past five years, many in our community aren't so blessed.  Local food shelves try to be there, but they need our help.

Show your compassion with the Fast Before The Feast.  Before sitting down for a big Thanksgiving dinner, participate in a race whose proceeds go to help stock local food shelves for those less fortunate.  For two nearby charities, "Fast Before The Feast" is an important way for them to meet the needs of the community.  This year we hope you'll help us raise 5 tons of food for the shelves!

The great folks at Caribou Coffee will be on hand with coffee and hot chocolate, and they have generously donated free drink coupons for anyone bringing food items, 250 buy-one-get-one-free kids' drinks with purchase of a large, 750 $1 off coupons good for any Caribou purchase, Ten $10 Caribou Cards for door prizes and 800 Blue Berry Muffins for after the race...goooo Caribou!

This event will be chip-timed by Final Time, Inc. (a division of Final Stretch), and we will have race announcements by the incomparable Jerry MacNeil.

Fast Before the Feast hosts a significantly larger drawing to give away merchandise and services to our race participants.  Drawings will be held during the race; check in with your race number after finishing to see if you’ve won (must be present to win)!
