Run Aquatennial 5K with your City colleagues

The Minneapolis Aquatennial is the City’s official civic celebration, and it’s just around the corner. One of the cornerstones of the Aquatennial is the Torchlight 5K fun run that leads off the Torchlight Parade. Tens of thousands of spectators line the route, which runs along Hennepin Avenue, crosses the Stone Arch Bridge and ends on Nicollet Island.

This year, you can join other City employees in running the 5K, which will be at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 20. It will be an informal group, but we will organize a meeting location and have signs to show our City pride. If youre interested in more details about the City team, contact or To register for the run, go to the Aquatennial Torchlight 5K run registration web page and then search for the City of Minneapolis team.
