Register now for the 38th annual Burns Park Run!
Sunday, May 1st, 2016
Winding through a beautiful 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.
Now in it’s 38th year, the BURNS PARK RUN will be held on Sunday, May 1st, 2016. It is a long-standing and successful fundraiser, organized and run by volunteers, that supports BURNS PARK ELEMENTARY PTO programs.
Known for its family-friendly atmosphere, the Burns Park Run 5K and 10K races annually draw 1,000 to 1,500 runners aged 5 to 90 years, with over 200 elementary school kids running the 5K. For the youngest of participants, there is a separate 1/2 mile Fun Run around the park.
This year, the Burns Park Run is pleased to partner with the Ann Arbor Running Company to offer the Couch-to-5K, a training program for those who want to get into running or back into running and need a little extra guidance. The Burns Park Run 5K is the end race for the spring program, which starts Monday, 2/22/2016. If you’d like to learn more or sign up, please visit http://www.annarborrunningcompany.com/couch-to-5k/.
