13th Annual Run Forrest Run benefiting Bellwether Harbor.
Run Forrest Run is a timed 5K run on the Trails of Branstrom Park or a 1 Mile Fun Walk or Run on the paved pathways of the park. We encourage you to involve your whole family, even the 4 legged members! Dogs are encouraged to attend and will recieve their own awards!
The 5K will follow the Fremont Cross Country course. Are you a past cross country runner? Want to see if you can still tackle the course with the same gusto? Are you curious what the current students talk about as being a hard course or would you like to enjoy the morning in one of the most beautiful spots in West Michigan? Then Run Forrest Run is the race for you. Not only will you be helping the animals at Bellwether Harbor but you will have a blast doing it!
