The 42nd annual Reeds Lake Run will start at 8 a.m. Saturday at the East Grand Rapids Community Center, 750 Lakeside Drive SE.
The event will feature a 5K run or walk, 1-mile Family Fun Run and the Shaggy Pines Doggie Dash, which allows runners or walkers to participate in a 5K with their dogs.
“We’re beyond excited to welcome professional and amateur athletes, as well as everyone in between back to the racecourse after a year off,” said Betsy Granstra, EGR Parks and Recreation aquatic supervisor and race director. “In addition to being ready to ease back into normal activity, we know many community members set new fitness goals throughout the pandemic that we can’t wait to cheer on. It will be so wonderful to safely gather as a community and kick off the summer together.”
The racecourse has been modified due to road construction.
Interested participants can register online or in-person at the EGR Parks and Recreation Department located within the Community Center. Late registration and packet pickup are 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday and 6:30-8:15 a.m. on Saturday at the Community Center.
