About This Activity

Donations for Clean Water-4-Flint can be made on our website or during registration.

EZ Run Events has made an amazing difference thanks to the Livonia Mayor and surrounding communities of Livonia. We will continue to accept donations at our store as a drop off left and shipping them to Flint weekly until things are fixed for the entire Flint community.

For more information visit our “Help Flint” web page on our website.


Join our Run/Walk at Maple Beach in Kensington Park on May 15, 2016.


EZ Run Events will be hosting a big event during and after the 5k and 1M. Invite your friends and family to join. Event is free to all.


Yoga will be on the beach before, during, and after the 5k and 1M.

Race Shirts

The T-shirt we will be giving to our participants will amaze you. They are sweat activated, which means the more you sweat during your runs, walks, or workouts the more that appears on the shirt. 

Shirts will be limited, but any extra shirts will be available for purchases on event day.         

Race Medal (5k Finisher Only)

Finisher medals will be an American Flag background with the event information.


All participants will receive a numbered bib that includes a chip timer.
