Northwoods Adventure: Bemidji Light up the Lake 5k

This weekend, runners took to Lake Bemidji for a 5k called Light up the Lake. The event gets its name for the accessories given out to each runner.

First introduced in Bemidji around five years ago, this is the first year back since last year’s event was canceled due to coronavirus.

Runs like this and other events let Bemidji know all of the things there are to do outside within the Parks and Recreation system.

There were 25 runners signed up for the event and more people were able to register at the site of the race. The three medal winners for the race were Sajin Kwok in first place clocking in at 25:27. Second place went to Claire Sletten at 31:02 and third place winner was Lisa Ellingson at 33:10.
