2017 Grand Rapids Turkey Trot 5K
Welcome to the 25th Annual Grand Rapids Turkey Trot. With the support of our sponsors we have been able to make some great additions to the Turkey Trot and hope that these enhancements will continue to create more excitement around the event and more runners participating. 2017 will be our 5th year partnering with the City of Grand Rapids, allowing our participants to once again enjoy a scenic route starting and finishing at the Van Andel Arena. This event is to promote community fitness, physical activity, and health and wellness of the Greater Grand Rapids Area. A healthy community is a vibrant community. Proceeds from this race continue to allow the district to offer interscholastic athletics to students in kindergarten through twelfth grade.
