Posted in Lanesboro All

Lanesboro, Minn. – Get a running start to the eighth annual Rhubarb Festival and, at the same time, burn lots of calories so you can enjoy all the free sampling of rhubarb treats at the Rhubarb Festival Saturday, June 2, 2012.

This year’s Rhubarb Run will feature more fun than you can shake a rhubarb stalk at. Winners take home a fresh rhubarb pie. All race entrants will get the Grand Rhubarb Treatment: serenade of accordion music, ceremonial fanning with rhubarb leaves, reviving shot of rhubarb elixir, and more.

Pre-register online for the Rhubarb 5k or 1-Mile Run or opt for day-of registration beginning at 8 am at the Bass Pond, off County Rd 8, just west of downtown Lanesboro. Race time is 9am. Family-friendly, kid-friendly fee structure encourages all rhubarb lovers and resistors to kick up their heels. Following the race is a 10am awards ceremony at the kick-off of the Rhubarb Festival in Lanesboro’s Sylvan Park.

After awards, runners can freshen up (showers in two locations in Sylvan Park) and stay for a day of sweet and silly rhubarb-related attractions, including rhubarb tasting, the festival’s signature attraction, Cock-A-Doodle Zoo featuring real kangaroo, lemur, alligator and other exotic creatures, Rhubarb Fashion Show, Rhubarb Games of Skill, Pie Making Contest, Rhub-Art, bake sales, rhubarb food and goods vendors and the Lanesboro Farmers Market.

All proceeds from the run support the Lanesboro Public Library. Run sponsors include Coffee Street Fitness, the Fillmore County Journal and Road ID.

For more information about the Rhubarb Run, visit the Rhubarb Festival website at http://www.rhubarbfestival.org or email the Race Director at rhubarbrun@aol.com The Rhubarb Run and the Rhubarb Festival offer a quirky lineup of family fun designed to celebrate the puckeriest and most surprising vegetable in all of Minnesota.
