The Lollipop Run


The Lollipop 5k Hill Run

Join us November 11th at Afton State Park for the Lollipop Hill Run! We are excited to present this exciting 5k course with 450 feet of climbing in one of the Twin Cities's most beautiful parks. Walking and hiking the event is also encouraged.

This is a fundraising event for Minneapolis Ski Club, thank you for supporting your local ski club, junior athletes, and coaches! Early Bird Pricing is $30 and is raised to $40 after November 9th. 


Races start at 9:15am on Saturday, November 12th. Lollipops and awards will be given out at finish line




There is plenty of parking close to the start and finish line. Parking is not allowed on the side of the road within Afton State Park and you must be in designated parking spaces only. 


Although the course design originally inspired the name of the race, you cannot have a lollipop run without having lollipops handed out at the finish line for all race participants. There will also be cupcakes for the  top 3 men and women.
