Members of the University of Minnesota women's basketball program, as well as its booster organization the Fast Break Club, were on hand at the third annual Women Run the Cities event at Minnehaha Park on Sunday.
Members of the team, as well as Goldy Gopher, helped line the course and provided loud cheers for the combined total of 3,000 competitors in the three races -- the Girls 1-mile Fun Run, the Women's 10-mile Run, and the Women's 5K Run/Walk.
Assistant coach Kelly Roysland and women's basketball office director Deborah Edwards both competed in the 5K event. Roysland finished 33rd among 115 competitors in her age group, while Edwards was 52nd out of 164 competing in her age group.
The event was organized by the Minnesota Commercial Real Estate Women (MNCREW), with proceeds benefitting the Ann Bancroft Foundation and the CREW Network Foundation.
