Description

The Lake Michigan Credit Union Bridge Run has been providing the community with a premier starting line to accomplish goals since 2002 and we invite you to join us in person or virtually to keep the tradition "running" (pun intended)! Whether you pick the 10 Mile Run or 5K Run/Walk, be assured you will have a great race day experience running through downtown Grand Rapids and of course, crossing the many bridges in the city. As race day gets closer, stay tuned for the specific route and Covid-19 safety protocols that will be in place. 

Our volunteer race committee is excited to put on this event for YOU! If you have any questions, please let us know by emailing lmcubridgerun@gmail.com
