2012 Spectrum Health Irish Jig
Men's Race: 9 a.m.
Women's Race: 9:35 a.m.
Now in its 29th year, the Irish Jig has grown to become one of Michigan's premier 5K (3.1 mile) races. The USA Track & Field certified course is mostly flat with a few gentle hills. The start of the race course is a short walk from the East Grand Rapids High School gym. Top age group winners receive prizes, and top overall finishers receive cash awards.
Spectrum Health is proud to provide this event as part of its mission to improve the health of the communities it serves. We look forward to seeing you on St. Patrick's Day!
