(CANCELLED FOR 2020) The Carlyle Sherstad 5K/10K
The 15th annual Carlyle Sherstad 5K/10K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, June 6, 2020 during Grantsburg's Big Gust Days.
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 Burnett County Salvation Army
Trophies are awarded to the overall top male and female winners in both the 5K and 10K events. In addition to these awards, medals are awarded to the first three male and female finishers in each age category: Pre-teen, 13-16, 17-19, 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's, 70+.
In addition to the 5K/10K run/walk, we will hold the 12th annual Kiddie Carlyle. This 100-yard dash is for children ages 7 and younger. Medals are awarded to all finishers.
