This is our community's 9th Annual Summer’s End Fun Run!
All profits Benefit our community wellness
Come enjoy a healthy and fun Saturday Morn'- good music, fun booths, and professionally timed.
We aren’t about the hype, colors, middle of the night runs, or rootbeer gardens (although those aren’t bad either). We are about family; Stroller, wheelchair & community friendly.
We are fun & we are local; come visit our "Farmers Market" and bring home something healthy to cook!
Summers End offers a 5K Fun Run/Walk, a 10K Fun Run, and a Youth 2K. All ages and abilities are welcome. Races start and end at Kentwood High School.
