Training days and times for the Sawdust 5k, Milltown Milers, and half marathon groups.


Race Director Jeff Leno and his wife, Alyson, have a passion for promoting healthy activities in the community of Cloquet and surrounding area. Running being at the forefront of what they do on a regular basis. Aside from their organizing efforts of the Cloquet Sawdust 5k, they have organized the Milltown Milers running club, A twelve week half marathon training group and the "Sawdust at 6" training runs.

Milltown Milers

The Milltown Milers is a very laid back social running group designed for runners of all abilities to get together once a week, this year on Wednesdays, to run a distance of 3-5 miles. We meet at various locations around the greater Cloquet area and we always stick around a little later than intended for social interaction or an (optional) post run workout. Find us on facebook or contact Jeff for more information.

Sawdust at 6

Finally, the "Sawdust at 6" is a training run, not a race, designed to give runners an opportunity to better familiarize themselves with the Cloquet Sawdust 5k route. Runners will meet at Pinehurst Park in Cloquet where they can run the course, possibly with a little competition. These runs occur the four Thursdays before race day.
