The 5th annual Faster Than The Pastor is not just a race against the clock, but a race against the cloth!

This 5k is runner, walker, stroller and wheeler friendly. The USATF-certified 5k course is FLAT and FAST and offers chip timing. Are you faster than the Pastor? If so, you will be entered into our raffle to win an iPad! The course starts and ends on the ground of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Brooklyn Park.

Child care is provided from 8:00-9:30am (free will donation).

A Little Lambs Mad Dash is also part of the celebration and is held on a grassy course on the church grounds. This FUN RUN is for kids 10 and under. Dash through the course, crawl through tunnels, scramble through cones and dodge squirt guns!

Join us on August 8th and run fast, take chances and count your blessings!!!
