2024 Fun Run Series - Registration Open

Registration for our 2024 Fun Run Series is open! Register early for all our fun run events using our online registration form. It’s going to be a great season!

Miles 4 Mentors Fun Run Events

The Miles 4 Mentors Fun Run Series consists of four to five Fun Run events held each summer season in the Willmar, MN area. Children are invited to run with their friends and family on our pre-set courses throughout the city. There is more to our Fun Runs than just running. Each event also offers fun activities, mentoring opportunities, and camaraderie. Runners in grades K-5 will also be provided with a t-shirt, medal, and other great swag depending on the event. Each event coincides with a fun community activity, allowing families to take part after the run. Also, please consider giving a gift to an underserved child to participate by sponsoring them. More information can be found on our Give page. Children under 4 must be accompanied by an adult during the event. Only children aged 5-11 years old will receive t-shirts and medals.

Willmar Stingers Invitational

June 13, 2024

This mini-event and fundraiser kicks off our Fun Run Series with the Willmar Stingers, our home team in the Northwoods League. Enjoy a night of baseball with us, meet Barry, and run the bases at Baker Field. At this event, we give away tennis shoes to several local children in need. The event is also a fundraiser for Miles 4 Mentors. Fellow fans will be able to make financial donations that will be matched by local businesses. High school track and cross-country team members also join in on the fun and will be running a relay race to see if they can finish their race before the last out. Our Stinger’s event is also a chance to celebrate Global Running Day, held on June 1st each year.

Kids under 14 get in free with a paid adult. Tickets must be picked up at the ticket booth no later than 5:55. The run will begin at 6 PM.
