Registration is open for Run to the Center of the World 5K Run/Walk. The 12th annual race will be held on Saturday, October 14 — two weeks earlier than previous years, so participants are encouraged to register soon. As always, the route will be on the beautiful, paved rural roads surrounding New Troy.
All finishers will receive a carved wooden medal, and overall winners' names will be engraved on bricks to be mounted in the Community Center garden. A free grab-and-go breakfast will be provided to all participants and volunteers.
Those who register before September 29 will also receive a free tee-shirt. Because Friends of New Troy is an advocate of the reduce, recycle, and reuse philosophy, extra shirts will not be ordered.
The race starts and ends at the New Troy Community Center, 13372 California Road, New Troy, MI 49119. Proceeds benefit the Community Center, which receives no government funding and is supported entirely through memberships, donations, grants, and fundraising events. The event is hosted by Friends of New Troy, the nonprofit organization that owns and operates the Community Center.
