Virtual Race Returns!

Grover Center holds second annual Race

Get out and get moving, all while helping Grover Center finish 2021 strong.
For the second year, Grover Center is launching the “Bears of Blue River Virtual Race,” with proceeds going to the work of Grover Center. From now through December 2nd, you can run, walk, or bike your 5k anytime and anywhere you choose. Your $30 registration fee includes a t-shirt and printable bib with the rest going towards our organization! If you register with a group of 5 or more, you each receive a $5 discount.
Not sure where to go? The Blue River Trail, which extends from the boardwalk off of Lee Boulevard in Blue River memorial Park to Habig Street, is a total of 3.8 miles, or just over 5K.
For those wishing to participate but at a shorter distance, we also offer a 1-mile walk/run for $20.
Registration is now open and will close December 1st. We hope you consider racing with us and helping us to continue telling the story of Shelby County for generations to come. Follow the link below and sign up today!
