Register now for the fourth annual run across M231 hosted by Ottawa County. Event Date: October 27, 2018. The race is being renamed the 231 River Run. Less of the run will be on M231 and more will be on the Idema Explorer’s Trail and the Spoonville Trail. In fact, if you have run this event before, you’ll be pounding the pavement on the very paths you helped complete. We think THIS is pretty cool!! Two distances will be available: 10k and 4 mile. 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 long-sleeved, hooded, T-shirt. 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! One adult beverage is included with the price of your registration. A cash bar will be available for guests and refills. You MUST have your valid ID to consume alcohol.
There will NOT be registration on the day of the race. If space remains, you can register at packet pick-up on Thursday, October 25 from 3-7PM at the Filmore Complex, 12220 Fillmore, West Olive by cash or check only.
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.
Thank you to the hosts and growing list of generous sponsors who have provided dollars, services or goods for the event and cause:

Runners will begin at Connor Bayou; run the Idema Explorer’s Trail to the Spoonville Trail; cross over the Grand River on the M231 Bridge and retrace back to the start. The 10K runners will continue on the Spoonville Trail; going under (yes UNDER!) the bridge through the country-side to Leonard Road. From there they will retrace back to the start.
Register by September 30 to ensure your personalized bib and long-sleeved hoody. The sizing is unisex, but the shirts are a slim fit. Extra shirts may be purchased in the event store.
