The Schoolcraft College campus will welcome area road runners and healthy walkers to the Healthy Livonia 5K run/walk on Sunday, September 25.
Registration is now open for the race, which starts at 9 a.m. The course is a loop that begins and ends at the TrinityElite Sports Performance Center. The entry fee is $30. Registration will be accepted online only – no race day registration.
Awards will be given to the overall first-, second- and third-place male and female, as well as first, second and third in each age category.
“Making Livonia the healthiest community in the nation is a goal of mine,” said Mayor Maureen Miller Brosnan. “The Healthy Livonia 5K is another step forward toward that goal and I hope it’s another great success. We are fortunate to have wonderful community partners, including Trinity Health and Schoolcraft College, that make Healthy Livonia initiatives become reality.”
Healthy Livonia, which dates to 2016, is a collaboration that leverages the resources of some of the city’s major institutions to create a health supportive environment and a good quality of life for all people in the Livonia community, with a focus on infrastructure, schools and workplace. The Healthy Livonia 5K is an excellent example of that vision as the event is perfect for families and seasoned runners.
