Nicollet Open Streets Run for Beer

Join us for a very casual 5k-ish fun run at Nicollet Open Streets, hosted by the Kingfield and Lyndale Neighborhood Association, and held on Sunday, September 23, 2018 along Nicollet Avenue South.

The Fun Run starts at 11:20 AM (check-in begins at 11 AM) from Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Park, 4055 Nicollet Avenue South, and goes first north to Lake Street, then south to 46th, and then back to the park again on Nicollet Avenue.

100% of all registration fees go directly to Kingfield and Lyndale Neighborhood Associations, non-profits committed to developing local leadership, identifying and solving local issues, and building a stronger community in our neighborhoods and within the City!

Your registration includes the fun-run, swag/give-aways, 1 free beer from your choice of select vendors along Nicollet Avenue, bragging rights, and event festivities including multiple stages with live music, special deals from local businesses, access to food trucks & beer gardens, and more fun at Open Streets which lasts until 5 PM. Don’t forget some extra $$$. In addition to your FREE beer and swag there will be merchandise for sale, food, and plenty more beer!

This event is open to the public, but space is limited, so make sure to register! RUN FOR BEER, support your community & local non-profits, and have fun!
