Register now for the fifth annual run across the M231 Bridge, Spoonville Trail and Idema Explorers Trail hosted by Ottawa County. Two distances are available: A 10k run and 4 mile run/walk. As in previous years, proceeds from the run go toward paved trails and bike paths in the West Michigan area. (There are plenty of miles yet to be paved.) The cost increases progressively until race day. Register by September 30 to ensure your shirt size and personalized bib! All runners will receive a shirt and finisher medal. Awards and a finish-line party will complete your memorable day. Be sure to purchase your post-race lunch tickets for yourself and fans when you register. We'll be serving Hog Wild BBQ this year! Those 21 and up with a valid ID can enjoy an adult beverage with your registration. Please bring your ID.
Proceeds from the run will go toward West Michigan’s non-motorized pathway system. An extensive system of paved trails benefits residents and visitors alike. Paved trails through Ottawa County provide opportunities for fitness and family recreation; environmental benefits; transportation corridors; and economic benefits to the community.
