Posted in Lanesboro Health & Wellness

Family-friendly, kid-inclusive Rhubarb Run 5K or 1-mile event invites runners, joggers and walkers of all ages to kick up their heels on Saturday, June 7. The Rhubarb Run epicenter is one block west of downtown Lanesboro, off County Road 8. Check-in and same-day registration start at 8 a.m. under the ball field pavilion. Race time is 9 a.m. Online registration before midnight Thursday, June 5 makes it extra easy: https://www.signmeup.com/online-event-registration/97914 A Rhubarb Run awards ceremony kicks off the Rhubarb Festival in Sylvan Park at 10 a.m.

“The run is a perfect way to burn calories before you indulge in a feast of free rhubarb treat samples at the 10th Annual Rhubarb Festival,” advised an anonymous spokesperson for The Divine Rhubarb Committee, the Festival’s organizing team.

Rhubarb Run 2014 promises to keep up its humorous traditions. Winners take home fresh rhubarb pies. All race entrants get the Grand Rhubarb Treatment: serenade of accordion music along the scenic river course, ceremonial fanning with rhubarb leaves, reviving shot of pure local rhubarb elixir, rhubarb refreshments and fun surprises.

After the race events, runners are invited to freshen up (showers in two locations in Sylvan Park) and stay for a day of rib-tickling rhubarb-related attractions on two stages, including the festival’s signature rhubarb recipe contest tasting attraction, Lanesboro Farmer’s Market, pie making, Cock-A-Doodle Zoo featuring exotic animals, rhubarb games, art, read-aloud stories, bake sales and vendors of tasty rhubarb foods and humorous rhubarb goods.

All proceeds from the Run support the Lanesboro Public Library. Run sponsors include the Jon Pieper of Old Village Hall Restaurant, Fillmore County Journal, HyVee, AccordioNation, Frank Wright and Road ID.
