The Life Time Torchlight 5K through downtown Minneapolis is a summertime favorite! Run through the spectator-lined streets of downtown and across the scenic Plymouth Avenue bridge leading to you by the Boom Island Lighthouse and into the finish chute where a post-race party complete with beer, a band and the best people in town awaits. Whether you’re an avid racer, or a first-timer, the Torchlight 5K is for you!
