Where does the 2015 HeartBeat 5000 take place?

Father Hennepin Bluffs Park. 420 Main St. SE, Minneapolis

How do I register?

Registration will be available the first week in February. Event t-shirts are included in your registration on a first-come, first-served basis.

I’ve been given cash and checks to donate to our team’s online fundraising. What do I do with it?

Send it in the mail to:
HeartBeat 5000 at Children’s Foundation
2910 Centre Pointe Drive
Roseville, MN 55113

It will take a few days after the donation is received to show up in your online total. Checks can be made out to ‘HeartBeat 5000.’ Please be sure to write down what team it is sponsoring.

Are strollers allowed?

A: Yes.

Do I have to register anyone in a stroller?

Children 2 and under are free. However, we would still like you to register them. Registration will be available in February.

Can I bring my dog?

Yes, however, please note that HeartBeat 5000 is not responsible for your dog and it must be kept on a leash at all times and is your responsibility.

What is the Kids Fun Run?

This takes place on Main Street and is no more than a block and a half long. It is split into two heats: kids age 4 and under and kids ages 5-9. Parents can run alongside their kids if they would like. It’s a Fun Run where everyone is a winner and receives a prize and a ribbon.

Do you have packet pick up before race day?

Yes. You can pick up your race packets at Sports Authority in Roseville (1750 Minnesota 36 Roseville, MN 55113). Dates and times will be available closer to the event date. We encourage you to pick up your race materials during one of these times.

Registration also opens as early as 7:30 a.m. on race day.

Where do I park?

There are multiple ramps on both the downtown Minneapolis and St. Anthony Main sides of the river. Free shuttle busses will be running along Washington Avenue, across the river and down University Avenue to the start line to accommodate participants parking in further ramps. Busses will be available from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Click here for a map of the shuttle bus route.

What if the weather is bad on the day of the event?

HeartBeat 5000 is a rain-or-shine event and there is no back-up date. If severe weather occurs, the start of the walk/run may be postponed for several minutes until the weather passes. If the storm is persistent, the event may be cancelled. These decisions will be made at the event, and will be announced at the start line and at the registration area. Because this is an important fundraiser, it is our policy to not issue refunds in the unlikely event that the event is cancelled.
