Grandpa's Run for the Walleye

Saturday, July 2, 2022 (7:30 AM - 11:00 AM) (CDT)


Registration is open for the 25th Annual Grandpa's 5K Run for the Walleye, with proceeds improving Walleye habitat.   Grandpa’s Run for the Walleye has become one of the signature events of the Crosslake 4th of July Celebration and will be held on the morning of Saturday, July 2nd, the same day as the fireworks over Cross Lake. 

The event, based at the Crosslake Community Center, begins with the 5K Run/Walk at 8:30 AM, and culminating with the Kids Sunfish Dash at 9:45 AM. 

Due to road construction closing streets normally used for the race, the 2022 5K race will probably not be conducted on our certified course, but in any event, it will be professionally chip timed.  (We anticipate the 10K race will return to our event in 2023 once road construction is completed.0

Online Registration is available by following the Run for the Walleye quick link at

Participants can also sign up and pick up race packets between 4 PM and 6 PM, Friday afternoon, July 1st at the Community Center. Race day registration will be open 7:30 AM until 8:15 AM. 

The cost of registration for the 5K is $30 before June 22; or $35, June 22 through Race Day. The registration fee for the Kids Sunfish Dash (up to age 10) is $8. 

All 5K registrants prior to June 22nd will be guaranteed their choice of a long or short-sleeved performance shirt. The 5K Race is chip timed. Whitefish Area Property Owners Association (WAPOA) sponsors the race; and uses the proceeds of the race to benefit fish habitat in the Whitefish Chain of Lakes.
