Take part in a world class  .1K road race that starts on one side of The B.O.B and finishes on the other. That’s right. We are running halfway around Grand Rapids’ favorite Big Old Building, because the whole way is just too far! Don’t worry, you will be able to show everyone what a great athlete you are when you put that .1K sticker on your car. Yeah, you’re that awesome! Register by October 24, and get upgraded from the standard short sleeve race shirt to a super-sweet (and warmer!) long sleeve version. All proceeds from the GR.1K will be donated to the Parent Project in an effort to cure Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

The 2017 GR.1K includes a post-race party with fun activities for the whole family! Live music will keep runners shaking their booties all afternoon! Beer specials will address any rehydration issues, while the more refined runner may choose tasty craft brews from The B.O.B. Bloody Mary Bar opens at 9:00am for those wanting to up their vitamin C levels. Race finishers looking to get their sugar buzz on will be able to taste test the entries from the “Cake-Off!” as local pastry chefs team up with our boys to design cakes for the cause.
