Registration is OPEN!


We are looking forward to running with you on Saturday, May 1, 2021 in Grand Rapids, Michigan! Our accessible course route begins at Rosa Parks Circle and takes you for an approximate 3.2 mile loop that crosses the Grand River and back. The route is accessible to walkers, runner, wheelchairs and strollers alike. We have made some modifications to the race structure and route to ensure proper social distancing guidelines.

2021 Features:

  • Rolling start that will feature an open starting line from 10:00am - 10:30am. Your race bib is chipped and your timer begins when you cross the starting line.

  • Modified route with wider sections to maintain distancing from other participants.

Check back here for more race and route updates!

Weather Policy

Nana’s Run will occur rain or shine. In the event of thunder or lightning before the race begins, or any other weather which presents a safety hazard, we'll postpone the run and ask participants to wait inside their vehicles until 20 minutes past the last instance of thunder or lightning. If thunder or lightening occurs after the race has started, Nana’s Run organizers will stop timing the run/walk and Grand Rapids Police Department officials and our volunteers will direct all runners and walkers to seek shelter.
