Brainerd, MN

Join us for our 2nd Annual Pack Run hosted by the Oak Christian School in Brainerd MN. 

The Pack Run is a family fun run that will benefit the Oak Street Christian School and its programs. It will offer a 1K, 5k, 10k option for all its participants. Besides paying a fee for participation, runners may also choose to support a school family of their choice by joining a “pack” or creating their own team and finding supporters of their own to contribute toward their goal. You can participate as an individual as well with no team or pack. All are welcome!

This event will take place May 15th in person. The race will start at Buffalo Hills Park and follow the trails back through Rotary Park and turn around. Choose the distance that you prefer. 

Why is it called the Pack Run?
Each student at the school will find donors, or pack members. For each pack member they receive they will place one book in a backpack. On race day each student will have their pack filled with all their donors/pack members and complete their chosen distance with their pack. 

Do I have to wear a backpack to participate? 
No you can still get out and get donations for the school and are not required for the public. Only students have to wear the backpack for the race:)
