Yellow Rose 5k & 10k
WARROAD, Minn. – July 16, 2019 – Register today for the 16th Annual Yellow Rose Race to be held
on Saturday, August 10th at The Point near the shore of beautiful Lake of the Woods in Warroad,
Minnesota. We’ve expanded our offering to include a pre-race pasta party and added a 10K race to
our long-standing 5K walk/run.
Festivities begin on Friday, August 9, from 5 to 7 p.m. with a NEW pasta party under the big tent on
the green space next to Mainstreet Bar & Grill. Race participants can pick up their race bags and enjoy
a meal and conversation with friends and family! The main events take place Saturday, August 10,
kicking off with the new 10K race in addition to the traditional 5K Walk/Run at 9 a.m. at The Point.
Proceeds raised from the race this year will go to H.E.L.P.P., where the funds will be put towards
easing financial burdens on community members experiencing hardships.
Following the race, walk/run participants and visitors are encouraged to stay in town for additional
events and activities, including the Warroad Market, where local vendors, food trucks, growers,
crafters and unique merchants will be gathered, showcasing their goods and services from 9 a.m. to 2
p.m. in the green space south of the library.
After a full day of fun down at The Point and downtown, put a cap on the day by enjoying a family-
friendly outdoor movie at the new Allison Park. Incredibles 3 is the featured showing, and it is
completely free to attend. Popcorn and treats will be available for sale. The movie event is hosted by
the Warroad Community Partners and sponsored by Lake Country Chevrolet.
