Man and woman running

About

History

The Lake Region Run has been the lakes area premier half-marathon, 5k and 1-mile event since 2007. 

The beautiful scenery of the Fergus Falls area, the variety of race lengths and the temperate conditions in early June make the race a perfect fit for the casual runner or walker to the serious competitor who wants to tackle the challenging hills of the half-marathon course. Everyone can feel the camaraderie and community as they participate in the cause of raising money for the Cancer Care & Research Center while doing something good for their health.
