About Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give

Entering its fourth year, the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give will be held June 13-18 at Blythefield Country Club. Similar to last year, proceeds from the tournament – and each of the week’s festivities – will benefit the Meijer Simply Give program that restocks the shelves of food pantries throughout the Midwest. To date, the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give has donated more than $2.1 million to local food pantries through the Simply Give program. 

Team Challenge

Meijer LPGA 5k Run & Walk presented by Kellogg’s will be adding a fun and competitive Team Challenge with two divisions: Community and Media.

How does it work:
1. Select a team captain and have them register your team
2. Find up to 10 runners to join your team (have them sign up as individual runners and make sure they select the Community Challenge option when registering)
3. Run your heart out at the event
4. Join us for the awards ceremony at 9:30 am to see how your team placed

Rules:
1. The top five finishers of each team (determined by age group place) will be combined for that team’s race score.
2. Teams are limited to 10 runners - must have at least 5 to score
3. This is a low-score-wins event (just like golf!)
4. In case of a tie, the team’s next nonscoring runner with the fastest time will be used as the tie breaker.
