White Bear Lake, MN
Most of us are extremely fortunate. On Thanksgiving Day, we get to sit down to a nice meal, surrounded by friends and family.
Show your compassion with the Fast Before The Feast. Before sitting down for a big Thanksgiving dinner, participate in a race whose proceeds go to help stock local food shelves for those less fortunate. For Hugo and White Bear Lake food shelves, "Fast Before The Feast" is an significant food drive that helps them meet the needs of the community. This year we hope you'll help us raise 10,000 lbs of food. We estimate it will take 2100 participants to reach this attainable goal. Start the season of giving by registering for this race and making a food or cash donation the morning of the race.
The great folks at Caribou Coffee will be on hand with coffee and hot chocolate, and they have generously donated coupons for anyone bringing food items. 200 free drink coupons, 250 buy-one-get-one-free kids' drinks with purchase of a large, 750 $1 off coupons good for any Caribou purchase, Ten $10 Caribou Cards for door prizes and 800 Blue Berry Muffins for after the race...goooo Caribou!
Local businesses donate gift cards, services and more to be used in a raffle on race day. It's easy to get into the drawing, just donate food or cash for the food shelves for your bib number to be entered. Drawings will be held during the race; check in with your race number after finishing to see if you’ve won (must be present to win)!
Fast Before the Feast is chip timed by Anderson Race Management. Race announcement by the incomparable Jerry MacNeil.
