Minnesota’s Annual Rite of Spring

Get in Gear Events

Event Director’s Welcome

Welcome to the Get in Gear 2022 events!

After two years of challenging navigation due to pandemic related restrictions, cancelled events and limited opportunity in both 2020 and 2021, it is with great excitement that we offer the 45th annual Get in Gear on Saturday, April 30, 2022.

We are extremely grateful to our sponsors and supporters for their support in helping us make this happen but we have had to make new modifications that are necessary at this time in order to continue to be sustainable in a return to Minnehaha Park and our annual rite of spring.

One modification is that we will be unable to offer prize money to our Get in Gear 10K winners in 2022. Awards will be announced in the future but it will not be in the form of prize money or will be a limited version.

The second modification is that we will not be offering the fun run in 2022. This event, though near and dear to our hearts for our upcoming youth runners, is not a sustainable event for 2022.

The Get in Gear is a one day only annual rite of spring event and has been since 1978. The support of our participants is vital to our success.

We are extremely grateful and humbled by the support that we have received and ask for continued support to kick off a 45th annual Get in Gear.

We look forward to having you join us at Minnehaha Park on Saturday, April 30.
