Blue Ribbon Run 5K: September 23

Run or walk in this fun event to celebrate survivors as well as remember those who fought prostate cancer during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Proceeds benefit the Us TOO Foundation, a nonprofit established in 1990 that serves as a resource of volunteers with peer-to-peer support and educational materials to help men and their families/caregivers make informed decisions about prostate cancer detection, treatment options and related side effects.

The flat course is perfect for those who are serious competitors, families or walkers.  There will be one 5K route (equivalent to 3.1 miles) around Downtown Traverse City. Start and finish at The Filling Station.

Zombie Run 5K: October 28

Bring out your dead for the ninth annual Traverse City Zombie Run, October 28th, 2017.

The Zombie Run has become a Traverse City Halloween tradition. What's not to like? Zombies and beer have always been a winning combination.

Over the years we have seen zombies from all walks of life, or should I say death. Who will show up this year? The only thing we never saw was someone not having a good time! Right Brain Brewery will be hosting the run as always. The run wouldn't be the same without our friends at the Brain, get it?

Stick around after the race for the medal ceremony and best costumes prizes. We may have a few other surprises as well. Plus the beer will be flowing, who says you can't drink before noon? Besides, you’re already dead anyway!
