Metro Health Grand Rapids Marathon

Hello, this is Don Kern, the director of the Metro Health Grand Rapids Marathon.

I would like to personally invite you to join me on an exclusive trip and run of a lifetime to the mysterious country of Bhutan February 28 to March 6, 2018.

I've run 229 marathons or longer races, in each of fifty states of the USA twice, in twenty-five countries, and at the North Pole, and I'm excited to finally run in Bhutan!

The week-long event features a retreat with running legends and culminates with the running of the Bhutan International Marathon.

We've only been allocated 10 places for this great trip. If you would like to join our group representing the Metro Health Grand Rapids Marathon, please reserve your trip soon.

Founded in 2004, the Metro Health Grand Rapids Marathon delivers a fun, highly personal, authentic race experience, particularly for runners who value a well-organized, personal experience over the chaotic, crowded fields of “big city” races through ”concrete canyons.”

The full marathon will give runners a tour of downtown Grand Rapids and then head out of the city and into the beautiful trails of Millennium Park to show just how great Michigan is in the fall.
Start Time is 8:00 a.m. Early start for the Velocity Challenged is at 7:00 a.m.

We are a race that supports every runner – no one is a stranger on our course – celebrates every individual accomplishment and embodies the spirit of friendship and community that is so unique to running.
