Runners are invited to stay and enjoy activities afterwards at the Pollinator Festival! In person runners will receive a custom Haulin' Pollen wooden medal by Tuscarora Woodworks and a t-shirt printed by Foxtrot Marketing which is owned by Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures, the business arm of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers for female, male, and non-binary will each receive a hummingbird feeder.
