Winter Blast Events
5K Run - at 10:00 a.m. a fast accurate 5k with an indoor finish. Miles 1, 2, & 3, are well marked with signs. Timing clocks will be at the 1 & 2 mile marks. The course is out and back allowing you to see friends/family along the way. An aid station is located at 1.25 miles. The City of Grandville has done an amazing job for us in ensuring a clear course in the event we were to have snow.
Awards in the 5K to overall winners, masters, and top 3 in the following age divisions U10, 11-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75+
The Winter Blast is endorsed for the 8th year by the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and as an endorsed event is part of the Pure Michigan Fitness Series. All entrants in our race are eligible to enter the 2017 lottery for the Mackinac Bridge Labor Day Run.
Winter Flurry 1K (10 & under) - at 10:45 a.m. the race of the day is run on an out and back course starting and ending in the same places as the 5K. Some Winter Flurry runners have been known to go directly from the starting line and into the gym, skipping the majority of the course and we are just fine with that! A number of the Calvin Christian cross country team runners will run along with these future stars and encourage them along the way. The enthusiasm and smiles of these runners as they receive their finisher medals is the best part of the day. $8 includes t-shirt, race #, finisher medal.
