Shakopee Derby Days 5K Turf Run

Race like a thoroughbred! This 5K starts and finishes on the turf racetrack at Canterbury Park. Runners burst from the horse starting gates and run on the 6″-high grassy turf of the racetrack before continuing along a cross-country style course outside of the track. Runners return to the turf racetrack to finish in front of the grandstand. Due to the uneven terrain, please understand, no strollers or pets are allowed on the course. Post-race refreshments will be available, with awards for top finishers in each age group. Come experience this fun and unique race! (In the event of heavy rain, runners will not be allowed on the turf racetrack and the course will be re-routed.)
