The Grand Rapids Marathon is a group of races designed by runners for runners.

Founded in 2004, the GRM delivers a fun, highly personal, authentic race experience, particularly for runners who value a well-organized, personal experience over the chaotic, crowded fields of “big city” races through “concrete canyons”.

To that end, the race continues to grow at 20% year-over-year and receives accolades from beginner and experienced runners while supporting like-minded charities with a strong local presence.

We are a race that supports every runner — no one is a stranger on our course — celebrates every individual accomplishment and embodies the spirit of friendship and community that is so unique to running.
