The Minnesota Wild will be hosting their second annual 10k/5k/1-Mile Run on Saturday, September 19. The proceeds will benefit the Minnesota Wild Foundation, which supports pediatric medical causes in the community. The race will begin at 8:30 a.m. CT at Gate Two of the Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul.
Aside from supporting a great foundation, the runners will also have the chance to win prizes. The top male and female finisher in each race will receive two lower level tickets to the game on October 27 against the Edmonton Oilers. The top three male and female finishers of each race will be awarded a team signed stick.
Athletes are encouraged to wear Minnesota Wild gear, but it is not required. During the races a “best dressed” contest will take place, and the winner will win a signed Nino Niederreiter jersey. Season ticket holders in each distance also have a chance to win a dinner at Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Club, along with passes to the Audi Quattro Club.
Every runner is entered to win two suite level tickets to the game against the Winnipeg Jets on September 27. Twenty participants will randomly be selected as winners. Each runner will also be granted a Minnesota Wild Breakaway t-shirt. Everyone who finishes the race will be entered into a drawing to win a team signed stick, as well.
