10th Annual Gloria's Shortest Marathon

Benefiting the White Bear Area Food Shelf

The 10th Annual Gloria's Shortest Marathon, a ONE BLOCK run organized by Gloria Carpenter to benefit the White Bear Area Food Shelf, will be held on Saturday, September 24th on Bald Eagle Avenue (between 3rd and 2nd street) in White Bear Lake. We will start gathering at 10:30 a.m. and the race starts at 11:00 a.m.

The past nine marathons have raised nearly $90,000 for the Food Shelf!

Your $35 tax-deductible donation per participant ($15 for children under age 12) includes: two White Castles from Mueller Mortuary for a carbo-load before the race, a bottle of water halfway down the block, so no one gets dehydrated, AND in celebration of completing the Food Shelf Marathon, Caribou Coffee and Cub donut holes at the finish line.

The first 300 participants to register by 9/15 will receive an "I FINISHED THE FOOD SHELF MARATHON" custom t-shirt. T-shirts are not guaranteed if you register after Thursday, September 15.

Join us the evening before, Friday, September 23, at the White Bear Area Food Shelf (1884 Whitaker St.) between 4-6 pm to pick up your t-shirt in advance and get a tour of the Food Shelf. T-shirts will also be available on the day of the marathon.

Thank you to our T-Shirt Sponsors: Abbott Paint, White Bear Country Inn, Rudy's Red Eye Grill, Donatelli's, IC System, and the WBL-VFW Post 1782 and Auxiliary.
