Organizer Larry Knoblich says as of Friday, the total dollars raised were between $35,000 and $40,000 as about four more bars are yet to report their numbers.  He adds, that one expected large donation is still forthcoming.

He says, with the current numbers, the Elks Camp Grassick will receive about $25,000, from this year’s event, and $10,000 is set aside for cancer patients, as 20 patients will have the opportunity to receive the dollars.  As of Friday, four patients will receive about $500 each.  A few more dollars will likely be available when the final count is in.

He points out that if more cancer patients would like more information on getting donations from this year’s run to call Larry Knoblich at 701-269-0603.

He adds that 1,600 registered to participate in the 2019 run.

He says, he plans to hold the 2020 Runnin O’ The Green on Saturday March 22, the weekend after St. Patrick’s Day.  He says this year the event was a week later than in the past due to the NAIA National Wrestling Tournament held at the University of Jamestown that brought a large number of participants and family to Jamestown.

In talking with officials with the wrestling tournament, Larry says, they plan to hold another national wrestling tournament in Jamestown during St. Patrick’s Day weekend in 2020, so the Runnin O’ The Green will be held the following Saturday like this year
