The 14th annual Carlyle Sherstad 5K/10K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2019 during Grantsburg's Big Gust Days.  Burnett Medical Center organizes the Carlyle Sherstad 5K/10K Run/Walk and donates all the race’s profits to a different local charitable organization each year. This year’s race recipient is the Humane Society of Burnett County. Kristi Schwartz, Marketing Coordinator for the Humane Society of Burnett County says, “donations are a crucial part of helping to provide food, shelter, medical needs and training to the animals in our care.  Your support also helps enable our community outreach programs to educate and engage the public about responsible pet care, spay/neuter programs and interactive shelter events.”

In addition to the 5K/10K, we will be holding the 11th 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.

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+. The award ceremony will start immediately following the Kiddie Carlyle.

The early registration fee is $20 and $15 for those aged 16 and under. Race day registration increases to $25 for those aged 17 and older. Everyone who pre-registers by Friday, May 10, 2019 will receive a free moisture wick t-shirt - so register early! Sorry, no refunds.
