Your favorite things, all in one place: running and donuts.  Whether you are a runner, a walker, or a donut-enthusiast, this is the event for you!  Set in Eden Prairie’s beautiful Purgatory Park, this official 5K course will be chip and mat-timed with new options for swag!  There’s a half-mile Mini Donut Dash for the kids, complete with a participation medal.  Proceeds will benefit Eagle Ridge Academy, offering an outstanding public, Classical Education.  Whether you are an avid runner in training for a race, participating in your first 5K, or bringing your kids for the Mini-Donut 1/2 Mile, you will enjoy a spring day in the park for a great cause. Enjoy music by ERA Alum "DJ Josh Raymond", complimentary chair massages and rock tape applications, and special guest emcee! Stay after the race for donuts, snacks and fun.
