This gorgeous nature trail run takes place at the Muskegon County fairgrounds in Fruitport, Michigan during fair week. Runners and walkers begin at the Pavilion in the center of the fairgrounds and travel through the beautiful wooded area off the Musketawa Trail. Enjoy the summer beauty, wild flowers, and perhaps even some wild life. The Muskegon County Sheriff’s Posse will provide direction and route protection throughout the race. 5K participants will finish back on the fairgrounds.
The Kid’s run takes place at the horse track, east of the fairgrounds. This event is for kids 12 years and younger. Parents may walk/run with their children.
Race fees: $25.00
Family/Group Rate: $19.00/person for 3 or more at the same address OR place of business.
Kids’ Run is FREE! (Kids’ Run T-shirts are $10.00)
