Young President Ford 5K or 10K or 10 Miles

Grand Rapids’ favorite son – Gerald R. Ford – the 38th President of the US, is buried here, beside his wife, Betty, but he was not born here. In fact, he was not named Gerald R. Ford at birth. This running tour will tell the tale of this humble civil servant as you visit actual places touched by “Junior” during his All-American youth – 1913 through 1931 – in old Grand Rapids. The run is a fabulous workout and an even better story of a young man who was raised in this great midwestern city to become a world leader. You will see where he lived, played, worshipped, studied, and competed athletically. As a last stop, you will salute Gerald Ford’s statue in front of his Presidential Museum.

Available in three distances – your choice.
