The 30th Annual Orthopaedic Rehab Specialists ORS OktoberFest 8k/5k Run/Walk will be back in 2021!
Race description for 2021:
The ORS OktoberFest 8k/5k event sponsored by Consumer's Energy and hosted by Grand River Brewery will start and finish at Grand River Brewery. The course includes the Armory Arts Trail, Jackson High campus, the historic prison, and various streets of downtown. The 5k course is USATF certified. Our 8K course had to change for this years race due to construction along the previously mapped course. The course will still run along the armory arts, and keep runners in downtown Jackson. Grand River Brewery will be opening at 8:00 am to accommodate the participant's family and friends with the breakfast menu included.
Costumes are encouraged!
DJ Tate 5 (Official DJ of Olivet College) will be on site to provide music and help host both our race and the Beer Mile!
