Jaynie (Herbranson) Halvorson Memorial 5k/10k/Fun Run!

Continuing as part of the Potato Days Festival celebration and targeting the sports minded, the Jaynie (Herbranson) Halvorson Memorial 5K/10K/FunRun/Walk is set for Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m. The course winds around scenic Blue Eagle Lake and continues on country roads and back again. Bring the whole family for some good exercise and fun!

We are honoring Jaynie (Herbranson) Halvorson who we lost much too soon by renaming our race after her!  She chaired this event for many years and spent countless hours putting it all together!  A portion of the proceeds will be donated to her son, Hoyt's college fund.

PRE-REGISTRATION IS STRONGLY ADVISED! The entry fee is $25 per person and due on or before August 10th. Any registrations received after August 10th or on the day of the race are not guaranteed a t-shirt.

Check-in for the run will be held at the Lions picnic shelter at Blue Eagle Lake located on the corner of 5th Avenue NE and 8th Street NE from 7:15 - 7:45 a.m. on Saturday.
