Dr. Angela Voight (pictured middle at this year's Moms on the Run 5K/10K) practices sports medicine, offering specialties that include ankle, foot, knee, and shoulder. As a runner herself, she understands the dedication of runners and the rigors of marathon races. When she’s not treating the athletes under her care, Dr. Voight supports our running community by providing medical coverage for local races and marathons. “I enjoy giving back by volunteering at race events,” she says. “I love to see runners out enjoying an event, and I’m there to make sure they are safe.”
Dr. Voight has completed 15 marathons and is also the official team doctor for the Minnesota Distance Elites and Moms on the Run.
More than 330 runners joined us for this year's Moms on the Run 5K/10K and Kids Run at beautiful Lake Phalen in St. Paul and online virtually. For our in-person event, we were greeted with perfect temps for a race! If you ran with us, find your race results here. We also have a Flickr photo album to which you may download any photos.
The race featured fun for the whole family. Kids were able to take part in balloon art, face painting, crazy hair and sign making (yay, moms!), before their own 1/2 mile "Run with an Olympian" and kiddie dash. Our after-party included prizes and food trucks: Inferno Wood Fire Pizza, VB & J's (smoothies and vegan goodies), and Chip's Thai Gourmet Kitchen (pad Thai, fried rice, egg rolls and chicken wings).
A big thank you to the wonderful volunteers who helped make the event run smoothly. We're so grateful for you!
