1. Lola’s Half Marathon! Saturday, June 6.
Lola’s Lake Waconia Half Marathon promises to provide one of the most scenic race routes in the greater Twin Cities area. It starts near City Square Park in lovely Waconia, weaves through the city then winds around beautiful Lake Waconia where you’ll catch your breath and to the finish at the park.
There’s something for everyone: the half marathon, 2-person 1/2 marathon relay, a 10 mile, the 5k run/walk that is dog friendly. Wrap it up by attending the fun “after-party” at Lola’s Lakehouse with lunch, live music, photo opportunities and more…only two blocks from the finish line.
2. Trinona! June 6-7 – Winona-
There are few places on this planet that are more perfectly suited to host a triathlon than Winona, Minnesota. With every stroke, pedal and stride during Life Time Tri Trinona, you’ll encounter incredible views and beautiful terrain. It will begin at dawn, as you set up in transition in front of Lake Winona and look up to see Sugarloaf Bluff rising above the town below. Following the swim, you will begin your journey into the true calling card for this event, the Mississippi River Bluff Country.
But there is a price to pay for all this ambiance. The terrain that makes this race so inviting is the very same terrain that makes this event one of the most challenging triathlons in the Midwest.
3. Sunday Morning Yoga Sunday, June 7 –10:30 a.m. – Boom Island. Yoga in the Park will continue. If the weather cooperates, we will all meet at Boom Island Park in NE Minneapolis. The class can be found near the bike path next to the river. There is no obligation to attend this class, however I will accept voluntary donations to help cover costs of the meetup site and other expenses related to the group. No experience is necessary as any and all levels of experience is welcome.
4. Open Streets Minneapolis?
With 1,800 miles of sidewalks, Minneapolis is a great place to go for a walk. 118 miles of on-street bikeways and 92 miles of off-street bikeways (as of 2014) make it a great place to go for a family bike ride too. OPEN STREETS MPLS events create even more miles of safe, car-free streets so that residents of all ages can walk, bike, participate in spontaneous play activities, and get to know one another. It’s free fun for the whole family. We are excited to have been invited to hold even more new events, and look forward to working with local residents, community groups, neighborhood groups, and businesses to make sure the events are a huge success!
5. Go to the Market – Saturday or Sunday. The St. Paul Farmers Market provides a wide variety of locally grown produce and other gems.
