What is the Valor 5K Challenge?

The 5K Challenge has a rich history of celebrating Christian education and building community. This race was started in 2011 by Avail Academy with the goal of raising awareness about Christian education in the twin cities. The 5K Challenge gives the Avail Academy community of friends, alumni, parents, staff and students a chance to come together to celebrate their amazing mission. All money raised from the event supports Avail Academy.

 

The race is a 5K course around Lake Harriet in south Minneapolis. Registering to run or walk is totally free! We want to see as many runners and walkers as possible come out and participate in our unique event. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution during the registration process to help ensure the vibrant future of Avail Academy. 

 

Students come to Avail Academy with a wide range of abilities, talents, and interests.  Every child is uniquely gifted to serve God in His world. Your generous gifts are an investment that will be multiplied in the lives of our students... throughout this year and wherever God calls them to serve Him in the future. Thank you for your support!

FAQ:

Will this race be chip-timed? 
We’d love to provide that level of accuracy, but our permit with the Park and Rec Board does not allow for chip timing. We will have a clock at the finish line, though there will be a little give and take, based on when you pass the starting line. This is a fun run and is not USATF certified. If you’re timing yourself with a GPS-based phone or watch, there may be slight variability in the final distance.

That’s a lot of people to have running on one path. What can the runners and walkers do to alleviate the congestion? 
So true, and thanks for asking! J Participants will be encouraged to start in corrals, according to their anticipated finish times. This year, we’re starting in the parking lot to avoid congestion on the trail at the start. While you’re running or walking, keep your eyes up to watch for folks you may meet who are not part of the race. And in the spirit of fun and community-building, keep the safety of all on the trail as a top priority!

I want to walk in the 5K, but I also want to watch my kids pass the finish line. How can I do both? 
If you’d prefer to be at the finish line, you may delay your starting time for the walk until after the runners are finished. You’ll still register as a walker and receive a shirt, but your time won’t be recorded according to the race clock.

Can I run while pushing my child(ren) in a stroller? And if so, do I need to pay extra? 
You certainly can. And there is no additional charge for your additional workout. We recommend that you start near the back of the pack to avoid contact with the ambitious runners at the front, just to be safe.

What is included in the post-race programming? 
Awards, food, a bouncy house, games for kids, a 50 yard dash for kiddos, more food, and loads of fun and community!

May I wear headphones while I run? 
Headphones are permitted in the race, but we will be sharing the course with the general public. Please be respectful, since we are the school’s ambassadors. (And we think you’ll have a more enjoyable race listening to the kids running near you!)

Will there be a bag check at registration? 
Unfortunately, no.

Any further questions? 
Please contact race directors - Amy Anderson a.anderson5771@gmail.com or Angela Byers angelablankespoor@hotmail.com

About EHS Science Travel-Based Learning:

Each summer, a group of students travel abroad to perform conservation research in an underdeveloped country. 

Next summer in 2020, 32 Edina High School juniors will take part in a conservation research expedition to the Indonesian island of Borneo. At the beginning of the expedition, students will visit an orangutan sanctuary and local village. From there, students will camp in the rainforest and on the ocean while performing research. During the expedition, students will be helping scientists inventory species both in the rainforest and in the ocean, quantify the carrying capacity for orangutans in the rainforest and study coral reefs. The goal is to help identify the fauna of Borneo forests and to help establish standardized monitoring protocol that can identify any changes in over time. The goal is to help the government develop ecotourism to help the local economy, quantify carbon quantity in the forests to receive carbon credits and prevent forest destruction.

Point to La Pointe Swim

Point to La Pointe Swim

Beach (map)

Swimming to Madeline Island has been a storied feat around the Bayfield area for decades. Starting as a community swim for 24 people in 2006, the Point to La Pointe has grown into a thriving race that sells out annually at 500 swimmers. The course is a straight 2.1 mile swim on Lake Superior from Bayfield to Madeline Island. The course follows the same route of the winter ice road, starting at the beach at the end of Washington Ave in Bayfield. It is approximately parallel to the route of the Madeline Island Ferry, finishing about 3/4 mile north of the ferry dock.  Swimmers have encountered all of Lake Superior's moods over the years, from calm, flat water to strong crosswinds with 2 foot waves. This event is registered with and approved by the US Coast Guard. 

Registration 

By 11/30 - $140
12/1 - 2/29 - $150
