Perfect Storm - July 13th & July 14th, 2019
5K, 10K, Half Marathon - Run one. Run two. Or run all three to make the Perfect Storm!


2019 Perfect Storm Challenge

Team R.E.D. is excited for the 5th Annual Perfect Storm! (formerly know as the Minnesota Nut House Challenge).  

July 13 & 14, 2019.

Packet Pickup is from 5-7pm Friday July 12th at TerraLoco, or 1 hour prior to your race.  We are working on some enhancements to the course, which may or may not change the start/finish location.  As you recall, in the past we started and finished at Soldiers Field in Rochester,  that could change this year, but it will indeed be a Rochester location. Stay tuned for specifics on the routes.

Perfect Storm:  You'll be running a 10K on Saturday morning, a 5K on Saturday evening and a 1/2 Marathon on Sunday morning.  Easy, right?

For those of you not up for the Perfect Storm you can choose the 

Thunder Storm:  This challenge involves one day of racing.  You'll run a Saturday morning 10K and a Saturday evening 5K.

1 Mile Challenge:  This challenge is three separate 1 mile runs that will take place 30 minutes before the 5K, 10K and 1/2 Marathon.  This is a great opportunity to get a warm up before each race, and an additional medal for added bling! 

For those of you that are not up for the 1 Mile,  Head for the Basement or Perfect Storm Challenges, but would like to be part of the fantastic Perfect Storm atmosphere, you can choose to run any individual race of:

 5K, 10K or 1/2 Marathon:  These runners will receive an individual time for their race, a finisher medal and a t-shirt (if registered by June 24).  Top 3 overall finishers in the 5K, 10K and Half-Marathon will receive prizes from select partners.
