Jared Anez Race Series

Starts Saturday August 1st, 2020

Willmar, MN

Official Website


Welcome back to the 3rd annual Jared Anez Memorial Race Series!  This year we are happy to announce a new distance, the 13K around Eagle Lake! This new race with a distance of 8.08 miles (13k) will be included in the Glacial Lakes Championship Running Series and each finisher will be awarded points in the series. The 13K will aos offer overall and age group awards. We aren't forgetting about everyone who loves the 5K distance (because we sure love it!) and bringing back our 5K race with overall and age group awards.

For anyone who would like to participate and receive their t-shirt but cannot attend on August 1st or would prefer to race on their own, we are offering a virtual option for both the 13k and 5k! Virtual race submissions will not be eligible for awards or Glacial Lakes Championship Running Series points.

Proceeds from this event will be awarded to Willmar High School students in the form of $1000 scholarships to students pursuing post secondary education in a STEM related field! In the last two graduating classes at Willmar High School, $6,000 were awarded each year to students thanks to the community donations and participation in this event.

Jared Anez was a father, husband, local agriculture business owner, school board chairman, and an active member of the Willmar community who passed away unexpectedly in March of 2017. Jared was passionate about education, family, faith, and a healthy, active lifestyle. We are honoring Jared's commitment to our community with a race series including a 5K and 13K distance with professional chip timing and awards for age division winners. Proceeds will be given in a scholarship in Jared's honor.

The Jared Anez Race Series is finalizing their detailed COVID-19 plan that will be shared with participants prior to the event. Please keep an eye on your email inbox and our social media pages for updates.
