Runners, joggers and walkers of all ages are invited to kick up their heels Saturday, June 4, at 9 a.m. at Lanesboro’s family-friendly annual Rhubarb Run. Participants can choose either a 5K or a 1-mile fun run along the banks of the picturesque Root River.

Register online before 8 p.m. Thursday, June 2 to make race day extra easy: Same-day registration and race day check-in begin at 8 a.m. on June 4 at the ball field pavilion off County Road 8 just west of downtown Lanesboro.

Race time is 9 a.m. Playful Rhubarb Run traditions aim to make every runner smile. All race entrants will get the Grand Rhubarb Treatment: a serenade of funky accordion music along the scenic river course, ceremonial fanning with rhubarb leaves at the finish line, a shot of home grown rhubarb elixir to revive runners’ energies, plus rhubarb refreshments, an onsite photographer (to capture runners in their wildest running apparel) and other fun surprises.

A Rhubarb Run awards ceremony kicks off the 12th Annual Rhubarb Festival at 10 a.m. in Sylvan Park. Winners in eight race categories will be awarded fresh baked rhubarb pies. All runners present will eligible for special door prizes, including a chance to be first-in-line for the famous Rhubarb Recipe Contest tasting, a feast of delicious rhubarb treats.

After the awards ceremony, runners can stay for a day of rib-tickling rhubarb attractions, including the Rhubarb Festival’s signature Rhubarb Recipe Contest and treat tasting event, Lanesboro Farmer’s Market, a line-up of live local music, a pie making contest, Cock-A-Doodle Zoo, rhubarb games, art, read-aloud stories, bake sales and vendors of tasty rhubarb foods, artisan items and humorous rhubarb goods.

All Rhubarb Run proceeds support the Lanesboro Public Library. Generous sponsors of the run include HyVee, Kwik Trip, Frank Wright, Road ID and the Fillmore County Journal.
