Welcome to the 8th annual Winter Blast Run!
The Winter Blast 5K and 1K Winter Flurry Kids run kick off the racing season in West Michigan and in 2013 our race was selected as the lead race in the Michigan Runner of the Year Series. The 5K is a flat and accurate with all 3 miles visibly marked. We have had competitive fields including Michigan Runner of Year winners Kris Koster, Nick Stanko, Wanda Handlin, Rob Hyde as well as Olympic Trials Marathon qualifier Katie Jazwinski. A few unique features of our race are the indoor finish, entry for all runners in lottery for Mackinac Bridge run, and most importantly the presentation of flowers to all female finishers in celebration of Valentines Day. If you are looking for a race that covers all the little details the Winter Blast is for you. With over 50 volunteers it is known as a "race for runners put on by runners". Thank you for your support of our race in the past and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday February 18th.
