This is a fast 5K event with separate run and walk divisions. Both divisions are timed- if you plan to run any portion- please sign up for the Run event. The course has been reworked for 2018 and will ensure quicker times for both runners and competitive walkers- with the pinch point at the track eliminated. We also have a new timing company to ensure quicker, accurate results. We will start the race with a huge balloon release honoring those that fight and/or support those that fight this disease. The course winds through the Grand Blanc High School campus, and includes a lap around the track. Entry fee includes race goody bag and cotton race T-shirt. (Technical shirt available for $5-7 additional). There is a One Mile Walk, not timed- perfect for families , strollers, and anyone who just doesn't feel up to 3.1 miles. We also have a "0.0" division for those who want to support the cause but don't want to run or walk. All participants will also receive a free ride ticket for the carnival at the Fun Fest! 100% of proceeds from this race support the Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance. We recognize the courage of all cancer survivors/fighters, wear your color and come join us! Get a race in on Friday and enjoy the weekend. This is a part of the Crim Training Program and your voucher entry includes a cotton T Shirt. Medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in all standard age divisions. The "Zumba Sisters" will be there to get everyone warmed up and smiling. There will be the best post race refreshments. Create a team or come on your own!
