gathered at Minnehaha Park for the First Annual Twin Cities Race to Stop Global
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.
- 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.
