Fit Families 5K Burnsville

Each spring, this community race through downtown Burnsville brings together friends and family for a fun fitness event.

Businesses, civic leaders, church groups and community citizens are invited to cheer on the runners as they make their way through town. People often dress in costumes, ring bells, blow bubbles and give high fives to support the racers along the course. With encouragement, competition and athletic camaraderie, race organizers and volunteers hope to grow young runners and promote healthy living, exercise and good health habits for life.

Youth 17 and younger run for free. For participants 18 and older, the fee is $25.
