Looking for an outdoor event to reenergize? The Taube Museum of Art and the Roosevelt Park Zoo are partnering together for the sixth annual “Run For The Arts” Race on Wednesday, June 4th, National Runner’s Day! The partnership with the Zoo this year is to provide a new location for the race due to the Downtown re-construction project slated to start summer 2014.The race kicks off the Taube Museum of Art’s Summer Art “Ventures” program and is a family oriented event for competitive and noncompetitive runners and walkers.
Registration starts at 6:00 pm in the Zoo Auditorium. The 5K Run/Walk will start at 7:00 pm, with the Museum Half Mile for children 4 – 8 and the Museum Mile for children 8 – 12 immediately following. The route will start and end in the Zoo back parking lot. Registration fees for the 5K are $20 for nonmembers and $15 for members; and $10 for children 12 and younger. So bring out the whole family and join the fun at the Taube Museum’s “Run for the Arts – the Zoo Tour!” Strollers are welcome. Pre-registration is encouraged, but you may register the day of the event.
Fees include: Run/Walk registration, healthy snacks, many door prizes, and silk screening your own race t-shirt! Prizes will be awarded to top winners in each race. Awards will be presented after all participants have returned to the race start location at the Zoo Auditorium.
New this year is an animal themed silent auction, which will be held in the Zoo auditorium before, during and after the run. The fundraiser proceeds will be shared between the Taube Museum of Art and the Roosevelt Park Zoo. With the continuing support of the Minot community we are able to fulfill our mission of enriching lives through the visual arts.
