Get your motor runnin’. Head out on the highway! Registration is now open for the run on the M231 Highway. This one-time event is sure to be a historic one!
Ottawa County is partnering with the Michigan Department of Transportation, the Grand Haven Running Club, Robinson and Crockery townships, plus the offices of Senator Arlan Meekhof and Representative Amanda Price to organize a preview of the new highway with the “M23.1K Run.” The new M231 Highway stretches seven miles through the spectacular, rolling countryside and over the Grand River in West Michigan.
The run will raise funds for Ottawa County’s non-motorized pathway system (commonly called bike paths). An extensive system of paved trails benefits residents and visitors alike. Paved trails through Ottawa County provide: opportunities for fitness and family recreation; environmental benefits; transportation corridors; and economic benefits to the community.
October 3 | 8AM | Grand Haven’s Robinson Elementary School | $35 | Register
I want to see the bridge but I don’t want to run…can I? Yes. You can volunteer to man a water station, check-in registrants or help with another task at the run. Or, you can be a spectator and hold up really cool, inspirational signs. Finally, you can attend an event (to be announced) where time is being planned for folks to walk on the bridge prior to the dedication. We think it would be much more fun to volunteer! More detailed information on volunteering is forthcoming–but please save the date!
