Rock The Pavement

With the best 5K and 10K course in Minnesota, this is an event you won’t want to miss! Join the Greg Marzolf Jr. Foundation as we Rock the Pavement on August 19, 2017! Choose to run or walk a 5K or 10K around beautiful Lake Calhoun!

All proceeds from the Rock the Pavement 5K and 10K benefit the Greg Marzolf Jr. Foundation in the fight for a cure to end Muscular Dystrophy! Muscular Dystrophy encompasses a range of muscle diseases that lead to the loss of muscle function, independence and life. With your support as a runner, walker, or roller, we can fund research to cure and end these diseases!
