The fifth annual Brainerd Jaycees Run for the Lakes will be held in Nisswa on April 27-28 2012.
Events include a kids’ fun run, 5K, half, full, and relay marathons, and a 10K. Registration fees for the full, half, and relay marathons will increase after Dec. 31.
This year’s course has been improved to have a new start and finish line. The full marathon is a qualifier for the Boston Marathon and the course is USA Track & Field Certified.
The Minnesota Pacers Team will pace the full and half marathon races. A pacer is a group leader who carries a sign and leads a group to the finish line in a specific time goal. The pacer will run even splits and strives to finish within one minute of their designated time goal.
