WELCOME TO OUR FIRST ANNUAL
TWIN CITIES RACE TO STOP GLOBAL WARMING!

The Race ended on May 18, 2002.

May 18, 2002 - On one of the first sunny days of spring, nearly 500 runners and walkers gathered at Minnehaha Park for the First Annual Twin Cities Race to Stop Global Warming.

With WCCO-TV meteorologist Paul Douglas, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Ryback, and Olympic Champion Bob Kennedy on hand, racers enjoyed a beautiful 8K and 5K road race along the river. The morning sun lay in dappled patches along the course, and only a few clouds marred the blue of the sky.

8k Overall Winners:
- Eric Overby, with a time of 26:56.0
- Tina Poulsen, with a time of 30:07.5

Upon crossing the finish line, racers had the opportunity to enjoy the music and hands on educational opportunities provided by Aveda's first Eco Festival. The Science Museum of Minnesota challenged the imagination with a myriad of information, while Dazy Head Mazy and the Abdomen played at the band shell- a perfect event for families and friends.

Congratulations to all who crossed the finish line.

We greatly look forward to building upon our quick start in 2003.
