-------------------------------------------------------- There'll be a new course for those planning on running Saturday's annual Dr. Steven Fetzer Memorial 20K. Co-race director Ann Walker-Rabatin called it "challenging but fair.

"Simply we wanted a change of pace,'' she said. "There was nothing wrong with the other course but maybe runners wanted a change of scenery.''

The race will start at the Best Western Apache and finish at Edina Realty, 1301 Salem Rd. S.W.


The course goes to 16th Street S.W., before heading to Mayowood Road, heading west. It catches County Road 25 and then goes north on 80th Ave. S.W. before going east on Country Club Road. Runners go to 19th Ave. S.W. before catching the frontage road to Edina Realty.

Entries will be accepted until race day. The race starts at 9 a.m. The fee is $20 and includes a long-sleeved T-shirt. For Rochester Track Club members, the fee is $18.

Last year the race attracted 189 runners and so far 153 have registered.

More information is available through or by calling 288-3269 or 285-9878. Mike Bjoraker is the other co-race director.
