Trivium Racing will be teaming up with Gerald R. Ford International Airport to bring you the GRR Runway 5k!  This event is going to be amazing!  Athletes will start by running along a service drive connected to a runway, then head out onto one of the major airport runways for a lightning fast 5K race!

This event is a must for your fall calendars (and your bucket list!) and is a great tune-up for your late season half and full marathons.

The race is capped at 1450 participants, so sign up early!
