RACERS Community Race Series

The RACERS Community Race Series is back in 2015 for a 3rd year! 
Over 25 community events throughout Southwest Michigan were a part of the 2014 series, including 5K Run/Walks and 10K runs. Each event provided SWMI RACERS members with registration discounts of $2, $5 or more. The goal of the race series is to encourage RACERS members to stay active and healthy while supporting the community by participating in area running events, and adding another level of competition. RACERS members gain entry into the RACERS Community Race Series at no additional cost, with paid annual club membership ($10 Individual, $20 Family). As an incentive to participate in the events, members receive registration discounts to each event. 

The 2015 RACERS Community Race Series kicks off on Saturday January 3 with the run FROSTY run 5K & 10K in Watervliet, hosted by SWMI RACERS.
