The KP Challenge is held every year and is really cool, as it gets you into three different races across winter (sort of), spring and summer. Each race is a different distance and is especially great if you are training for Grandma's Marathon this year.

All About The Races

The races are as follows, with all of the events perfect for avid runners or those that want a new challenge:

  • Saint Fennessy 4K on Saturday, March 14th at 10 a.m.
  • Fitger's 5K on Saturday, April 20th at 9 a.m.
  • Park Point 5-Miler & 2 Mile Walk on Thursday, July 18th at 5:30 p.m.

Registration Details

Registration officially opened on Monday, January 1st! You can enter and get more information on all the races via the Grandma's Marathon website. You can also register separately for these races but why do just one when you can do all three?

 DETAILS: John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon Cancelled

Registration for the KP Challenge is $85 dollars and limited to the first 200 people to register! With registration, you get all the fun prizes that come along with all three races, like the t-shirts and such. Kids can register for $25 bucks.
