New courses for 2019!

We’re excited to announce we are shaking up the courses for 2019! We will still be starting on Ottawa Avenue adjacent to Calder Plaza, but heading further south into the city than we have in the past. Check out the maps below for more details on these changes. We hope you enjoy seeing more of the beautiful city of Grand Rapids.

Please note: some minor course adjustments were made on March 26. If you downloaded the maps prior to that date, new versions are now available. The digital maps below reflect the changes.
