Come and enjoy running or walking through scenic Fowler, Michigan neighborhoods and on the rail trail as part of the Most Holy Trinity (MHT) church festival weekend! The first wave of the 5K will start on Saturday, July 25th at 6:30 PM. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic several changes will be made to the race this year in an effort to ensure participant safety. Among the changes are we will stagger race start times by age group and we will not have a kid’s dash. Other changes are described in more detail below and will be emailed to all participants before the race. We are still looking forward to an exciting and enjoyable race.
The 5K start and finish will be near MHT and strollers are welcome. The 5K cost includes a t-shirt which is guaranteed for those registering at least 2 weeks before the race. Extra t-shirts are available to order for $10. All race proceeds will go to MHT. The 5K will be good for seasoned running veterans as well as casual athletes looking to get some exercise. Modified contact-free race day registration will be available, but we would prefer that you register online or mail the paper registration form. Online registration will be available through Thursday, July 23rd at 11:59 PM.
The 5K course map is shown below. Participants will start running north on Maple Street near Kent Street and will turn left on Blue Spruce Drive. After going through the subdivision, participants will head back to the starting area and will turn right on Kent Street. They will take the curve on Kent Street, continue down Pine Street, Clinton Street, and Henderson Street to the rail trail. After heading west down the rail trail, participants will turn back east and return on the same roads to MHT for the finish.
