DULUTH, MN – With the sun beating down on a hot race course, a pair of Minnesota natives came out victorious at the 48th Annual Park Point 5-miler.

Nick Nygaard, a native of St. Michael, MN won the men’s division of northern Minnesota’s oldest road race with a time of 26:27. It’s his second Park Point win, after he came out on top back in 2015.
