Why Run the Pier 5k?
Not only are you and your friends/family outside getting exercise and fresh air during the nicest time of the year in Michigan, but you are contributing to a charitable event that focuses on raising funds for local causes.
Plus the race day will provide an additional opportunity to potentially increase commerce to the downtown district through added attention, foot traffic and tourism.
