The Carlyle Sherstad 5K/10K is named after a great promoter of running in Grantsburg. Carlyle Sherstad was the founder and organizer of the 16.2 mile Grantsburg race called the Syttende Mai. That race was an annual event for many years, drew hundreds of runners from all over the Midwest, and is a significant part of Grantsburg's history.
Burnett Medical Center organizes The Carlyle Sherstad 5K/10K and donates all profits. The recipient this year is the Grantsburg Revitalization Organization.
The early registration fee is $20, $15 for ages 16 and under. Race day registration increases to $25 for ages 17 and older. Everyone who pre-registers by Friday, May 11 will receive a moisture wick t-shirt - so register early! Sorry, no refunds.
In addition to the 5K/10K run/walk, we will be holding the 10th annual Kiddie Carlyle. This 100-yard dash is for children ages 7 and younger. Registration is $1 and every child who crosses the finish line receives a medal. The Kiddie Carlyle will start at 9:00am.
