The Hopkins Raspberry Run is truly one of Minnesota's great running traditions. It was known in it's early years for drawing the largest and most competitive field of runners in the midwest. A lesser-known part of its history is that it was also one of the first road races in the country to offer finishers a race t-shirt. 

We want to commemorate the 50th running of the Hopkins Raspberry Run with a replica race t-shirt from a past race year. This is where we need your help.

1) If you have a race shirt from a previous Hopkins Raspberry Run, send us a picture or post it one of our social media accounts. If you're the first to post or email that year's tee, we'll send you a $5.00 off coupon code for this year's race!




2) When we have all (or most of) the photos from previous years tees collected, we need you to vote for your favorite. The person who posted or sent us the photo of winning year, will receive a comp entry to the race. 

We've got the 1976 race tee covered already, thanks to Olympian and former Hopkins Raspberry Run champion Bob Kempainen (see photo). 

Thanks for the help! We look forward to seeing some tattered old race tee photos coming our way.
