About This Activity

Lolë Grand Rapids is partnering with Grand Rapids Running Tours to take you back in time - into an era of graceful, elegant living and imagine life as an heiress to a furniture company fortune - then join us on Heritage Hill.  Located immediately east of downtown Grand Rapids, this is the city's oldest residential district and Michigans' largest and finest concentration of nineteenth and early twentieth-century houses.  Over 50 architectural styles are represented in one of the largest urban historic districts in the U.S.  We stop at 14 of 1,300 homes that date from 1843.  These were the homes of mayors, bankers, attorneys, company owners, lumber barons, doctors, judges and the clothiers who shaped the city's future.  This was where the upper crust lives...on "the hill".  This tour is closer to 4 miles, our gift to you.

We will meet in the lobby of the JW Marriott Downtown Grand Rapids.

Arrive by 7:00 so you are not left behind!

This is a run for all paces but it is a run.
