Hit the trails in Lakeville.
Run the Ritter combines beautiful trails and a great running community with homegrown conservation efforts. In 2018, seasoned running director and passionate trail runner Paulette Odenthal was encouraged by friends to start the Run the Ritter 3-, 5- and 10-mile race. The race is now entering its fifth year, and to date, the run has raised a combined $5,000—including a $2,000 grant from Brooks Running—to support prairie restoration, woodland management and trail maintenance.
Participants choose to run a 3-, 5- or 10-mile course around Ritter Farm Park, followed by a hot breakfast with eggs, pancakes and sausage. All ages and abilities are invited to enter, though children must be accompanied by an adult.
All ages. $35 for 3 Mile Fun Run/Walk, $35 for 5 Mile and $45 for 10 Mile. 8 a.m. November 11. Ritter Farm Park, 19300 Ritter Parkway Trail, Lakeville; runtheritter.com
