Tonka Trot for Heroes: A celebration of the good that’s being done every day in our community.

Join us for Fun, Fitness and Community!

We have so many amazing heroes in our community... military, police, firefighters, teachers, doctors, moms, dads and many more. Join us at Groveland Elementary for a fun run (1.5 miles) to celebrate and thank these heroes for their service. Entry fee includes a cape – guaranteed to the first 900 participants.

The morning opens at 7:45 am with same-day registration, the vehicle fair will open at 8:00 am and our 1.5 mile Family Fun Run will start at 9:00 am.  We’ll have a flag raising by a local color guard, singing of the National Anthem by Major Philip Litfin of the Minnesota Air National Guard, and a flyover by a B-25 Bomber to kick-off the run!
