There’s a new parkrun on the block!

Eagan

Eagan, Minnesota is the latest pin on the parkrun USA map! Eagan parkrun starts April 22, in Thomas Lake Park. Eagan is a town in the metropolitan area of the the Twin Cities, “only” a 10-hour drive from Livonia, MI, 11 hours from Mansfield, OH or, for that matter, just a 3 hour flight from San Francisco or Orlando, to nearby Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

 

Even before parkrun, the “Onion Capital of America” had a lot going for it, including being ranked as the 11th best place to live in the US in 2014. We hope to hear all about it in the next edition of this newsletter directly from Nate Damro, Event Director.

 

Eagan parkrun is on Facebook. Also on Facebook, Baltimore, Maryland is making the right moves to bring parkrun to Leakin Park by May. And if you can’t wait… Whitby parkrun, in Canada, starts April 1st. No joke!

Over the past months, for…
