The event, Tater Tot Trot, was part of a weeklong series of Potato Bowl USA events culminating in the Sept. 7 football game between the University of North Dakota and South Dakota State University.

Proceeds benefited a pair of nonprofits: East Grand Forks Food Shelf, East Grand Forks, Minn.; and St. Joseph Social Care, Grand Forks, N.D.

A 10-kilometer race was canceled due to excessive heat. Potato Bowl USA races, started in 2008, have raised more than $6,000.

Julie Kirkeby of Choice Health and Fitness, Grand Forks, N.D., a bowl committee volunteer, coordinated the race.
