Get a taste of the Grand Rapids Marathon! Come out and run with us for 10 or 20 miles! SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 AT THE DAVID D HUNTING YMCA. 7AM TO AVOID THE HEAT!
You can start later if you like, and the course will be supported until 12:00.
Please join Team World Vision and our Marathon Staff for the official Metro Health Grand Rapids Marathon 10 & 20 Mile Training Run. The course will preview a portion of the actual Metro Health Grand Rapids Marathon route as well as some beautiful parts of Millennium Park. Aid Stations with water and Gatorade will be available every 2 or 3 miles. There will be accessible bathrooms at mile 3 & 17 (Kent County Parks Trailhead). No registration fee–but SIGN UP so we get an idea how many to expect.
Saturday, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 – 7:00 am at the David D. Hunting YMCA
Restrooms are available at the start and finish line (at the Y), at about 3 miles (Trailhead) and half way point. You will also find an aid station every 2-3 miles. Water and Gatorade on the course, maybe a surprise or two. But if you have special nutrition needs, bring it with you.
Here’s the course:
The event starts at 7:00 am and ends at 12pm (there is a 5 hour time limit–but we won’t leave anyone stuck out there.)
Please note that the course will not be closed. Please make sure to practice proper runner safety.
