The Washburn Running Club supports runners in Cross Country and Track and Field at Washburn High School in Minneapolis. We have a proud history of top runners, both current and alumni. More importantly, we have a team of boys and girls that welcome everyone on the team and support all runners in their personal successes. Every runner, at every pace, is supported and celebrated.

As a public school in the Minneapolis district, we do not have the funding that other teams may have, but we are a tight community that takes great pride in our school and our team. Just over a year ago we were able to raise enough money to purchase team tents for both the Cross Country and Track and Field teams. These tents not only provide shelter to our athletes when they are not racing, but they are a great source of pride for our students and the gathering place of teammates. The tents symbolized our unity as a team.

Our last meet of the year was in Sioux Falls, SD on November 14, 2021. We set up our tents the night before the meet, to ensure a warm space for our first runners of the day. That night, a storm blew through, with winds up to 50 MPH. The tents were uprooted and damaged beyond repair. Our team was devastated. We were able to save the sides of our tent, but need to replace the frames and canopies.

Please help us raise the funds needed to replace these tents for all the Washburn runners, both present and future! 

Your support gives Washburn public school students a chance to show their pride at races all year round.
