ST. CLOUD -- The Earth Day Run in St. Cloud is still three months away but the excitement is already building. CentraCare Wellness Director Jodi Gertken says they're seeing big registration numbers so far.

Yeah, we're actually at record-breaking numbers this year.  So we're really on par for a record-breaking year and an excellent event.

Gertken says they've been working hard to take their already popular event to the next level.

We've ramped up some of our marketing this year.  And I think word of mouth, the people that have participated know it's awesome and they're letting other people know about it.

Gertken says the 5K run has sold out the past two years.

She's expecting nearly 10,000 runners and spectators in town that weekend. After parties are being planned for both Friday and Saturday.

The Earth Day Run is Friday and Saturday, April 20th and 21st.
