Ever dream of going toe to toe with a TRAIN?

300 select runners will board the Coopersville train for a trip out to the starting line.The runners and the train will start at the same time, heading west to downtown Coopersville.  The first 1.5 miles of the course runs parallel to the train tracks.  Talk about motivation to move faster!

The train speed is going to be based on the average estimated finish time of ALL registrants.All runners are asked for their estimated finish time when they register.  If we add up 300 estimated finish times, divide by 300, and the average is 25 minutes, then it will take the train about 25 minutes from start to finish.

Regardless of your pace, get ready for your best 5K time ever, we can almost guarantee it!Cash prizes await the fastest finishers.
