Run Thu The Rapids 10k and 5k – October 18, 2014

Grand Rapids Marathon and Half Marathon- October 19, 2014

The Metro Health Grand Rapids Marathon is a group of races designed by runners for runners.

Founded in 2004, the GRM delivers a fun, highly personal, authentic race experience, particularly for runners who value a well-organized experience over the chaotic, crowded fields of “big city” races through “concrete canyons”.

To that end, the race continues to grow year after year and receives accolades from beginner and experienced runners alike, while supporting like-minded charities with a strong local presence.

It is a race that supports every runner — no one is a stranger on the course — celebrates every individual accomplishment and embodies the spirit of friendship and community that is so unique to running.
