Description

Whether you're a dedicated runner or just someone who jogs from the couch to the fridge, the Torchlight 5K in Minneapolis is fun for everyone! And of course we make every effort to make this event just as amazing of an experience for our volunteers! Our race headquarters is just steps from the Minneapolis Aquatennial fireworks display, so plan to see some of the best fireworks in the state when your shift ends! Come alone or bring a friend and register to volunteer at the event that 'Runs Hot and Parties Cool!'  

PerksAll volunteers receive a complimentary event crew t-shirt.
