About This Activity

Running the Trail, Feeding the County!

The Romeo 2 Richmond Race is the most talked about race on the Macomb Orchard Trail! Enjoy the scenic views of Macomb County's best kept secret. Just when the trees are beginning to change color and the air is just becoming brisk, this race promises to be your favorite. Each year we raise awareness of how important it is to help our own neighbors. The Macomb Food Program continually needs our support in feeding the communities. Our race has donated more than $30,000 to the program which feeds people throughout the county - our neighbors who need help. This certified race is also a qualifier for the Run Macomb 5K in November.
