It’s the 26th Anniversary of the Traverse City Track Club’s Remembrance Run! Join us on the beautiful Pere Marquette State Forest Trails at Timber Ridge Resort in Traverse City for our 5K Run or 1 Mile fall color “tour”. The Remembrance Run is a 5K Run/Walk event to enjoy the outdoors being active and to recognize the many special friends and family we remember and celebrate who have been challenged with cancer.
To encourage more participation, we are starting the events at NOON on a Sunday! Also new this year is the option to upgrade to official timing and the opportunity to compete for age group awards. With optional timing now available in the 5K, The Remembrance Run also becomes one of the Grand Prix series events for 2019.
Participation in this event by the many runners and walkers, volunteers, sponsors, and community partners enables the Traverse City Traverse Club to make a large contribution each year to the Women’s Cancer Fund. To date, this total has added up to $250,000 and has helped many women in our community who are not only challenged with breast cancer, but are also in need of extra financial assistance for non-medical aspects of their care. For this reason in 1997, we were integral in helping Munson Healthcare Foundation create the Women’s Cancer Fund.*
Like all Traverse City Track Club events, including the Bayshore Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K, The Remembrance Run offers a great active outdoor running and walking experience.
*The Traverse City Track Club will never solicit funds in the name of the Munson Healthcare Foundation’s Women’s Cancer Fund by any means other than expressed in this one day event. Should you ever receive email, text, phone call, or any other means of soliciting, please notify your local police department immediately.
