Happiest of the Holiday Season to you all!

We realize and appreciate how busy the season is but want to remind you to register for our fantastic 40th anniversary Get in Gear events by December 31st (before the Jan. 1 fee increase). We also ask that you consider giving the gift of the Get in Gear to a friend or family member as a great stocking stuffer idea. Not only will you be spending time together, you can also promise them a lovely spring morning at beautiful Minnehaha Park with a view of Minnehaha Falls, one of Minnesota's renowned tourist attractions. Here’s what else you can promise them as a part of their Get in Gear race registration:

  • A race shirt with our 40th Anniversary Design;
  • A beautiful custom struck finisher commemorative medal for any of our events;
  • A 40th anniversary headwrap given at packet pick-up;
  • A “travel and go” MyPillow given at packet pick-up;
  • Post-run food and beverage offered on-site which we call “breakfast”.

Please check out our 40th anniversary Get in Gear video which features footage from the early 80’s and all previous race shirts. It is a blast from the past and very fun.

Register today! We are looking forward to hosting the 40th Annual Rite of Spring in April of 2017. 

Please feel free to connect with us at or call our office hotline at 651-528-8284. All calls and emails returned promptly.
