The Women of Nations 2019 Fun Run 5K event is for all ages, runners, walkers and dogs!
Join the Women of Nations team as we raise funds that will directly benefit women and children who have suffered trauma from domestic violence, dating violence, sexual violence and human trafficking. Women of Nations runs the Eagle’s Nest Shelter, an emergency shelter in St. Paul, that provided safe shelter and support services to over 500 women and 270 children in 2018.
The Fun Run will include a marked course, snacks and bottled water, doggy participant prizes and a 2019 Fun Run t-shirt! We will not be offering course time recording, but participants are welcome to time themselves.
Be Healthy. Live Active. End Violence.
Check-in opens at 8 AM. The Fun Run starts at 9 AM. Course closes at 11 AM.
Check-in and Registration tables will be located at the Phalen Park Amphitheater, located on the west side of the lake, near the picnic pavilion. Bathrooms are available in the picnic pavilion building, the beach house and at least one port-a-potty will be available along the course.
The course follows the walking/running paths around Lake Phalen, so participants will start and end at the Amphitheater.
There are four public parking lots located at or within .2 miles of the Amphitheater.
Please check-in upon arrival to ensure your waiver has been signed and to receive your t-shirt.
Day-of, on-site registration will be open until 9AM. Cash and credit cards accepted. T-shirt sizes will be limited.
Please bring only necessary items. Bins will be available at the check-in table for larger personal items you do not want to carry with you on the course. Women of Nations is not responsible for lost personal property. Do not leave valuables in your car.
The weather should be fair to mild, so please check the weather forecast before you head out and bring appropriate attire that will keep you comfortable during the Fun Run.
