We have a flexible start time from 8:30 am to 10:00 am. This will allow ample social distancing at the start of the race, along the course, and at the finish line. The race is chipped timed with T-shirts, live results and awards. 

Family Fun Event: This is a great event to bring the family. We have a 5k and mile that you and your children can start anytime between 8:30 and 10 am. To help encourage our young people to run and stay active we have made the entry fee for 18 and under only $5 (includes T-shirt!). Entry fee for adults before October 20th is only $20. Register 2 adults and 2 children for $50.

We have a FULL stay safe race plan in place, see below for all the details.

Proceeds from the race will go to support the Michigan Running Foundation Kids run for $5 program. We are partnering with races across Michigan to help them offer a $5 entry fee for kids 18 and under. The Foundation pays the race $10 per entry for every 18 and under participant. This will make it possible for the race to offer a $5 entry fee for kids. We hope this makes it possible for families to sign up their kids to run with them and encourages young people to stay fit and run races at a very inexpensive race fee of $5.
