In 2016, we will be dedicating the 5K to Andy Beardsley, the late son of Dick & Mary Beardsley. The 5K - sponsored by SJE Rhombus will be held on September 10, 2016 at 11am.
Andy lived in Detroit Lakes ~ and loved being outdoors, fishing with his dad, and his Green Cadillac (thus the awesome logo!) Andy finished a 5K himself, and even though he was not dubbed a runner, he exemplified the ability to take on the challenge and complete a race. Or as his dad's quote reminds us "When you cross that finish line, it will change your life forever!"
Saturday's Andy Beardsley Memorial 5K Run/Walk will give everyone a “Taste of the Lake” as you run past Detroit Lakes staples such as Zorbaz and Lakeside Tavern! Finish strong with a rock and roll party at the Pavilion! This one is open for ALL ages and ALL levels. If you can walk for 45 minutes….you can do this! Crawl, Run or Walk…..this one awesome 5K event!
In 2016 - the FIRST 500 people registered for the Andy Beardsley Memorial 5K Run/Walk will receive the 2016 Fargo Marathon Under Armour bag!
