Faster Than The Pastor

The fourth annual Faster than the Pastor 5K is coming together to be another EXCITING and rewarding event!

Faster than the Pastor 5K ~ not just a race against the clock, but a race against the cloth!!! This USATF certified 5K course is flat and fast! Every Pastor you beat enters you into a raffle to win an iPad2. Nine age group award brackets - 3 deep, as well as a unique Team Division added to this years race, expect to have even more cloth to clock!

The 5K course is FLAT and FAST.  Run on Maple Grove neighborhood roads and wide, paved, asphalt sidewalks – starting and finishing on the ground of St Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Brooklyn Park.  The Shepherd’s Flock, Kids 1K, will be held on a grassy course at St Vincent de Paul.

The race is walker, jogger, runner and stroller friendly. All 5K participants will receive a commemorative high performance t-shirt, a voucher for a free hot dog/brat and pop at our Harvest Festival, and a goodie bag.  Enjoy the flat and fast course and come back for the entertainment found at our parish Harvest Festival Fun!

With the two stellar course records set in 2011, we are ready for FINE performances from all of you!  Register early for lower registration rates.
