Join us for the third annual Heart of the City 10K, 5K and 1K Kids Run. Net proceeds benefit the Kids Feeding Kids program, a partnership with the Twin Cities Boys & Girls Club. Race fees include a long-sleeved tech shirt, refreshments and participation in the Burnsville Fire Muster Festival. The 10K and 5K courses are looped and on residential streets with some shade, also running through the beautiful Heart of the City of Burnsville. Bring your family, friends and co-workers for this great event!
New this year is the Run For Jordan
For the last two years, Jordan was a participant in and volunteered for the Heart of the City Races. Jordan’s passion was children and she knew that supporting this race would directly benefit kids who were in need all over the Twin Cities metro area. The many children in Jordan’s life and in her family were always drawn to her beautiful, fun-loving spirit.
Participants who Run for Jordan will receive a green race shirt to show their love and support. Jordan’s favorite color was green. Please show your support and honor her memory: Run for Jordan.
