For the nineteenth consecutive year, a run is being held in Barron in memory of Barron native Lyndon Ellefson, who died July 10, 1998 after falling into a deep crevasse in the Italian Alps while training for the Skyrunning World Championships. All proceeds from the run will be used to benefit the Barron Area Community Center. This year's proceeds will be put towards improvements in programming and facility updates including expansion of our parking lot. A silent auction will be held on race day which will feature many items from local businesses. You must be present to win.
The Lyndon Ellefson Memorial Run features your choice of three distances: 1 mile fun run walk, 5K or a half marathon. So now matter your activity level, there is a distance for you!
Back this year is the Barron Alumni Challenge. The Barron Alumni class with the most participants will receive FREE meal tickets to the Barron Fall Fest Pig Roast. The class that shows the most spirit during the race will receive FREE beverage tickets to use at the Barron Fall Fest Beverage Tent. Make sure to mark your class on the registration form.
