    This event is the 3rd Annual charity run event. In 2018, the monies raised helped our recent amputee and former Ironman friend, Nate Wigdahl receive the blade he needed to start running again. 

    This year, The Blade 5K and 1 Mile events are going virtual! 

    Due to the unprecedented statues of the world, we are switching our run to a virtual event! You will have the entire weekend of July 18 - 19th, 2020, to complete the distance, whether it be 3.1 miles, or 1 mile. 

    Our mission is to provide funds for Nathan to receive the TWO running blades he so desperately needs. We feel that while our event will look different this year, we can actually reach a much bigger audience. We can get into multiple cities, and possibly go international!

    Please join us in the weekend goal of walking or running either the 1 mile, or 3.1 miles. At the time of registration, you will get to pick your distance. You'll receive a t-shirt, medal, and the satisfaction of knowing that you helped out a sweet kid be able to keep active, just like the other kids his age!  

    You'll have the option of uploading your results or not. It's totally up to you! But, we DO want you to upload photos or video footage from your run/walk to our Facebook page at The Blade 5K. This is history we're living through, so we want to see it documented!

    Know an amputee? Or are you one yourself? Are you looking for something to get you motivated? Then this day is for you.

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.

ALWAYS visit the race's website for the most complete and accurate race information.
