About This Activity

Virtual Run (jog, walk) and Ride in memory or honor of a loved one!

An out and back course that will take you through the rolling hills of Fruitport with trophies for top female and male finishers, and medals for all participates. A downloadable map will be emailed to all registered virtual participates.


Again this year, the 40th Annual Fruitport Old Fashioned Days 5K run will benefit the Leila & Cyrus Poppen Hospice Residence.

We will be pivoting to a virtual-only option for the 5k or bike ride events this year. Due to the cancellation of Old Fashioned Days, and all in-person activities we are only able to offer a virtual 5K and bike ride this year. Virtually run, jog, walk, or bike between Saturday, May 22 and May 29 (by 11:59 pm to qualify for 5K top finisher).

Runners, walkers, joggers and bikers must register online. Register early as t-shirt sizes are not guaranteed after May 17. Online registration and crowdfunding open with all proceeds to benefit the community-based Poppen Hospice Residence in Fruitport Township. Since 2006, the Fruitport and surrounding communities have supported the annual event with almost $17,500 in proceeds benefiting our inpatient hospice program, The Leila & Cyrus Poppen Hospice Residence, which opened in 2005.  Over 3,000 patients and families have called this their home at end-of-life.

Crowdfund support for your run or ride.  Top crowdfunder will win a surprise gift card and run or bike swag!  Raise funds for your run or ride by creating a simple fundraising page and sharing link through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Start your fundraising page here.
