Friday 5K

Welcome to Friday 5K, the foot race series that'll have you questioning reality and begging for more! Are you bored of those yawn-inducing, been-there-done-that races? Craving some unpredictability and excitement? Buckle up, because Friday 5K is about to rock your running world!

Our race is wilder than a chimp on roller skates – it's a prediction run! That means no watches, no gadgets, zilch! You'll have to channel your inner psychic and rely on pure gut feeling to guess your finishing time. At the starting line, a nerve-wracking countdown timer awaits. When it hits your predicted time, you bolt like lightning, hoping to finish with the clock as close to zero as possible. Adrenaline-pumping? You betcha!

The Friday 5Ks take place on the first prime numbered Friday of each month from May to September 2023:

May 5, 2023
June 2, 2023
July  7, 2023
August 11, 2023
September 1, 2023

There are five races in total, and the race ENDS at 7:30 PM EST. Swing by anytime before that to ensure you can finish before the clock hits zero. Most people arrive around 6:30 PM EST. The starting line is at Beachwood Park in Muskegon, MI, near the main parking lot.

The champ of this race is the one who finishes just as the clock's about to hit zero without it actually doing so – like defusing a bomb, but sweatier! The prize? A stunning hourglass trophy, perfect for showing off on your mantel, accompanied by a plate etched with your victorious date. If you're after that dazzling trophy, you better tune into your inner psychic and make an eerily accurate prediction!

Our race is so one-of-a-kind, even registering feels too mainstream! No registration needed – just show up and run!
