5th Annual Rhubarb Run will award homemade rhubarb pies to all winners


Fri, May 17th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Health & Wellness

Rhubarb Run 5K and 1-Miler celebrate the funniest vegetable in all of Minnesota. Saturday, June 1 the race activities will be staged one block west of downtown Lanesboro, off County Road 8. Check-in and same-day registration start at 8:00 a.m. under the ball field pavilion. Race time is 9:00 a.m.

This family-friendly, kid-encouraging event invites laughter-prone runners, joggers and walkers of all ages to kick up their heels. It’s a great way to burn calories before sampling all the free rhubarb treats at the ninth annual Rhubarb Festival, which directly follows the Run. A 10:00 a.m. Rhubarb Run awards ceremony in Sylvan Park kicks-off Rhubarb Fest festivities.

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

Pre-register online for the Rhubarb Run or opt for same-day registration. Park at the Bass Pond off County Rd 8, cross under the scenic bridge along the Root River to the ball field side Check-in/Registration area and Starting Line.

After the race events, runners are invited to freshen up (showers in two locations in Sylvan Park) and stay for a day of sweet and silly rhubarb-related attractions, including the festival’s signature rhubarb recipe contest tasting attraction, Lanesboro Farmer’s Market, Pie Making Contest, Cock-A-Doodle Zoo featuring real kangaroo, lemur, alligator and other exotic (possibly rhubarb-eating) creatures, Rhubarb Fashion Show, Rhubarb Games, Story Tree read-alouds, Rhub-Art, 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 Fillmore County Journal, Commonweal Theatre, Artesian Fresh, Frank Wright, Lanesboro Fire Department, Joe Deden/Eagle Bluff ELC and Road ID.
