For the twentieth consecutive year, a run is being held at the Barron Area Community Center, Inc. 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. A silent auction will be held on race day which will feature many items from local businesses.
The Lyndon Ellefson Memorial Run features your choice of two distances: 5K or a half marathon. So no matter your activity level, there is a distance for you!
Come for the Lyndon Ellefson Memorial Run and stay for the Barron Fall Fest Activities.
