There’s a new parkrun on the block!

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.
