Welcome back to the 6th annual Jared Anez Eagle Lake Race Series! The Half Marathon (13.1 miles) is included in the Glacial Lakes Championship Running Series and each finisher will be awarded points in the series along with a finisher's medal and gift. All 5k and Half Marathon participants will receive a race T-shirt with their race packet and all in-person participants are eligible for overall and age group awards.
For anyone who would like to participate but cannot attend in-person on August 5th or would prefer to race on their own, we are offering a virtual race for both the Half Marathon and the 5k. Virtual race submissions will not be eligible for awards or Glacial Lakes Championship Running Series points. All virtual Half Marathon finishers will receive their race medal in the mail after their race submission.
We are proud to celebrate Jared's legacy with the proceeds of the race funding scholarships awarded to Willmar High School students pursuing post-secondary education in a STEM-related field. This year, for the graduating class of 2023, the Jared Anez Memorial will be giving $10,000 to the Willmar High School Scholarship Program! We couldn't make this contribution to high school students each year without the donations from our community partners and all of the participants who choose to run with us!
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. These values are demonstrated daily by Jared's wife, Kami, and his 6 children, Sam, Savannah, Harley, Jonas, Sullivan and Lawson and we are grateful for everything they bring to the Willmar community. We are honoring Jared's legacy and the Anez Family's commitment to education and community with this race series.
