WHAT: This 5K Run/Walk is on a totally closed course within Spring Valley Park on the North East side of Kalamazoo. It is arguably one of the fastest 5K courses in the region and certainly among the most scenic. Join us to experience it for yourself. We are also offering a 1/2K Kids Fun Run.

INFO: The course features an opening loop across a footbridge in a unique and beautiful park setting. The course is closed to vehicle traffic. There is a 23 foot total elevation change along the course. Whether you plan to run or walk, you will enjoy the surrounding trees, water, flowers, and wildlife. This is a setting that will draw you back many times throughout the year.
The 1/2K Kids Run will be timed and overall results will be posted, but no age group placements will be awarded. The 5K Walk will be timed with awards going to Overall Male and Female, pulled from their classes and then remaining top five overall men and women will receive awards. The 5K Run will be timed with Overall Male and Female, Masters (40+), and Grand Masters (50+) winners pulled from their respective age groups.
