Run for the Lakes

The Brainerd Jaycees Run For The Lakes was conceptualized in 2007.

The Brainerd Jaycees Run for the Lakes has grown tremendously since the first event in 2008. Despite the unforgettable first year blizzard, the event now draws more than 1,000 runners who wind their way through remarkable northwoods scenery. The all-volunteer race is organized from start to finish by Jaycees and carried out with the support of over one hundred members of the community and several local businesses. All proceeds from Run for the Lakes are donated to local non-profits and focus on improving trail systems in the Brainerd Lakes Area.

2018 marks the 11th annual Brainerd Jaycees Run for the Lakes!!

Events include a Kids Fun Run, 5K, 10k, Half, Full, and Relay Marathons. The race weekend has something for everyone from amateur to professional.
