It’s the most Runderful time of the year!

Kick off your holiday by staying active and healthy with your family, friends, and the Playmakers Fitness Foundation! Join us for the 9th annual Playmakers Holiday Classic Run/Walk this holiday season. The event will be back at Jenison Field House this year!  The start/finish will be at Jenison Field House, and the 5K course will wind through the campus of Michigan State University.  Participants can choose to join for an official start at 9:00am or can begin anytime between 9:05-9:20am.  This will allow for social distancing and safe racing, running or walking!

How does the official start and the open/flexible start line work?
Start the 5K run/walk any time between 9:00-9:20am. Those wanting an official start should line up to start at 9:00am.  After the official start, the start line will remain open until 9:20am. The starting line area (on the River Trail behind Jenison Field House) will be wide, and the space is open to allow for social distancing. You do not have to feel rushed to get to the starting line; start your run/walk when you are ready. While there will be a clock at the start/finish, this is not a chip-timed event.

Family and Friends pricing: Save $3 per person when registering 4 or more participants at the same time. Online registration only.
