Run for Mike

Join us for the Mike Elhard Memorial Run! If you knew Mike, you knew his large smile, love for running, and passion for baseball! Mike passed away while preparing to run the Chicago Marathon, a race he had waited years to run on September 13th, 2021. On Saturday, September 17th, 2022 we will gather at the Purgatory Creek Park Pavilion in Eden Prairie, MN to celebrate Mike. Let’s continue to show Kristi, Owen & Ethan our support and “Run for Mike!”

Walkers and strollers welcome!

Attending the run in-person is not required. Register to run the virtual 5k and participate from your hometown while sharing pictures on the “Run for Mike Elhard” Facebook page.
