Saint Fennessy 4K
Named after longtime Grandma’s Marathon friend Don Fennessy, this festive St. Patrick’s Day-themed race runs through Hermantown and offers fun for the whole family!
The 4K distance is suitable for all ages and is perfect for runners or walkers. With the finish line positioned next to Skyline Social & Games in Hermantown, race day is sure to offer endless entertainment, great music, and tasty food and beverages!
Net proceeds from the event go to benefit the Young Athletes Foundation (YAF), the nonprofit arm of Grandma’s Marathon focused on helping the area’s youth develop healthy and active lifestyles. Since its inception in 1990, the YAF has donated more than $1 million to youth athletic organizations in a five-county region.
The St. Fennessy 4K is the first race in the annual KP Challenge, with participants committing to run three YAF races throughout the spring and summer. The others are the Fitger’s 5K and Park Point 5-Miler, with the series designed to keep participants on a regular training schedule that supports the successful completion of longer distances.
