Burns Park Run
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
THE 2014 BURNS PARK RUN WILL BE SUNDAY, MAY 4.
Winding through a beautiful old Ann Arbor neighborhood near the University of Michigan campus, the tree-lined Burns Park Run loop course has been a favorite of beginner and world-class runners alike.
The Burns Park Run is a long standing and successful fundraiser, organized by Volunteers, that support Burns Park Elementary PTO programs.
Annually, the 5K and 10K races draw 800 to 1,000 runners aged 5 to 90 years, with over 200 elementary school kids running the 5K. A separate 1/2 mile Fun Run around the park for younger runners starts after the 5K and 10K races finish.
May 5th, 2013 is International Barefoot Runners Day (IBRD). The Michigan Chapter of The Barefoot Runners Society has selected The Burns Park Run as the official IBRD Michigan event. This will be the official International Barefoot Running Day ’13 race as selected by the largest barefoot runners organization in the world!
