2019 Course Maps:

We are working with the City of Grand Rapids to determine the best route for 2020 based on construction projects.  Stay tuned, but in the meantime reference the 2017 routes as we will try to keep as much of the road routes as possible.

The route maps above approximate their miles based on the assumption that runs aren't closed and you running against traffic.  When the course is measured, we take the shortest distance from the start to the finish, which is why there is a variance between the maps and the mileage on the race day.
