Life Time Torchlight 5k Reignites August 25

WHAT: The Life Time Torchlight 5K is resurrecting from the heat to deliver one of the coolest running events of the summer Aug. 25. While the typical happy hour ends by 6 p.m., the Torchlight 5K invites race-goers to extend their happy hour later into the evening with MillerCoors.

Along with the rescheduled date is a new race route and start time, exclusive to this year’s event only. With a sunset as the backdrop, the week night race will begin and end on St. Anthony Main, near Nicollet Island. Runners of all ages and abilities are invited to suit up figuratively, literally, or creatively and run or walk along an urban, yet scenic route along the picturesque Minneapolis riverfront beginning at 8 p.m. The race also serves as the championship race for the USA Track and Field Minnesota 5K circuit.

A post-race bash will follow on Nicollet Island including prizes and refreshments for race participants and the general public.

Those interested in participating can still register online through Aug. 23. For more information visit

 All registrations for the July 20 event will be honored at this rescheduled event.
