2020 Race Cancelled Due to COVID-19

Update 4/20/2020:

It is with a heavy heart that we announce this race is cancelled for 2020.  

We know that you have probably received several of these emails over the past few weeks, and it gives us no pleasure to be writing another one ourselves. Due to the affects of COVID-19 we will be unable to produce The GM Run Through the Center 5k in 2020. There is a lot of planning and preparation that goes into producing this particular event for both General Motors and Trivium Racing and we are all devastated that the work will not come to fruition this year. The event will happen again in the spring of 2021.  For our athletes who are already registered for the 2020 event, we have a few choices for you.

  1. Athletes can receive a full refund for their 2020 event registration, including processing fees
  2. Athletes can continue to support this great event and defer their registration to the 2021 event.
  3. Athletes can instead participate in the Trivium Take Back 2020 Challenge. This virtual event is currently running, and is an amazing way to stay motivated for your 2020 goals!

Athletes signed up must provide a respond by 4/27 with which option they would like. Athletes who do not respond by that date will automatically be deferred to the 2021 event.

Here Are Your Options:

We will defer your registration to the 2021 GM Run Through the Center 5k as soon as registration opens for next year. We do not have the exact date yet, but it should be on about the same weekend as in 2020. 

We will transfer your registration to the Take Back 2020 Challenge. You will get an email with instructions and a Bingo Card by 4/28/2020. 

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

With a record setting attendance in 2019, GM continues to give area athletes an opportunity to run through unique places on their campuses that non-employees normally would not have the opportunity to experience.  While the Prove It 5K lets athletes run on the high performance test track, this race will let runners and walkers experience the grounds of the gorgeous Warren Tech Center.

This 100% closed course event will wind through the fast, flat streets of the Tech Center and give athletes a great opportunity to PR.  The course is USATF certified, and will feature some of the best sights on the campus.  Athletes will be treated to custom shirts, Run Through the Center finishers medals, live results, and great post race awards and snacks.  Everyone is welcome to come race this event.  Bring your kids- children ages 6 and up can run, and strollers are allowed!

The Warren event is part of the Trivium Southeast Michigan Running Series.  Athletes, clubs and corporations who compete in a Running Series event will gain points for themselves, and their teams.  Accumulated points will be added up throughout the season, and awards will be given at our end of the season party!
