Description

Don't miss your chance to run West Michigan's favorite  25, 50, 100 and 200 mile relay, The FRED!!

 

NOTE: We recently changed pricing formats, so every participant registers at the cost displayed. That is not the cost for a whole team. One person no longer has to front the cost for the whole team!

 

The FRED Running Relays are a fun and challenging TEAM effort, where runners combine to run their chosen distance. You will form a team, plan out who is running which sections and on race weekend, will load up the vehicle and embark on the challenge! As of 2024, we now offer distances including the 25 Mile, 50 Mile, 100 and 200 Mile Relay. The course, in it's longest distance, is 36 legs/spurs, traveling from Belmont, north to and around lake Cadillac, then returning to Belmont. Each leg is between 2 to 9.5 miles in distance. Thanks to the efforts of West Michigan Trails Origination and events like this, the trail is now completely paved. A percentage of proceeds from this event, go to the West Michigan Trails Organization, who continues their efforts to provide more miles of paved and pristine trails, for our everyday use.

The White Pine Thaw Marathon Relay

The FRED Running Relay can be a challenge to some. We also put on The White Pine Thaw Marathon Relay, the second Sunday in March. This event starts in Comstock Park, right behind Vitale's. Teams averaging 6 runners, will start at 9am and run 13.1 miles north to Russell Road, before returning back. Suggested exchange zones will be in Belmont and Rockford, as well as the turn around at Russell Road. Following the team accomplishment, teams can gather inside of Vitale's where you can redeem the food and drink voucher that came with registration. This is DEFINITELY a great practice run for The FRED!
