Register today for the 2024 Run for the House! Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan is excited to announce our Champion Sponsor, MSU Federal Credit Union!

The 2024 Run for the House will start and finish at the MSU Federal Credit Union Headquarters in East Lansing. There is something for everyone, including a 5K run/walk, a 10K run, a 10K Ruck and a Kids Fun Mile & Sprint. A virtual option is also offered. 

  • In-Person Race: Participants who choose this option will participate on the marked courses beginning on MSUFCU's Headquarters on Sunday, March 17, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. The 5K course will guide you out onto West Road and through the paved paths on MSUFCU's campus. The 10K course will be announced soon. Both courses will be chip timed by the Michigan Running Foundation.                                                                                                     
  • Kids 1 Mile Fun Run & Sprint Children ages 12 & under registering for our kids races can enjoy both the Sprint (very short distance that even our youngest participants can complete) and our mile-long Fun Run.The Sprint starts at 9:15 a.m., and the Fun Run will begin immediately afterward. Kids race registration allows children to participate in both races. 
  • Ruck for the House 10K: NEW this year! The Ruck for Ronald addition to the 2024 Run for the House will follow the 10K course beginning and ending at MSU Federal Credit Union Headquarters campus. Rucking is walking with weight on your back based on military training workouts. Participants will provide their own weighted vests or backpacks. Course limit is 1 hour and 30 minutes. The Ruck will be chip timed by the Michigan Running Foundation.  
  • Virtual Race - Pick Your Pace: Participants who choose the virtual race option can run or walk the race between March 15, 2024 through March 17, 2024. Virtual participants can participate anywhere their feet will take them — at home, on a treadmill, in a neighborhood or at a local park! Virtual participants may order a race packet, but they must be picked up in person. Awards will not be available for virtual participants.

Can I bring my dog?
MSUFCU allows dogs on their campus as long as you abide by the City of East Lansing leashing ordinance and your dog can handle the social interaction of the event. If you are walking or running the 5K with your dog, we do ask that you start at the back of the starting group to avoid accidental tripping.

*Shirt opt-out option available!

At the Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan, our purpose is keeping families close to the care their sick children need, and providing comfort, support and resources for families just steps from the hospital. We can't wait to bring you the 2024 Run for the House while continuing our commitment to keep families safe while keeping them close. We will continue to follow local government health guidelines surrounding events. 

Employees of the Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan are Sparrow employees. As a result, we follow the Sparrow Health System staff guidelines.

Help make a difference for families of seriously ill children. Your participation in the Run for the House 5K Run/Walk, 10K Run, 10K Ruck and Kids Run will help the Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan provide a home-away-from-home for those families who have a child being hospitalized or receiving treatment at Lansing-area hospitals and clinics. The House offers a comfortable, inexpensive and private place for families to sleep, eat and relax. Here families find a caring atmosphere where they can receive strength and encouragement from others who are also going through difficult times.
