GR.1K Runs at Noon in Downtown GR!

The GR.1K Presented by Grand River Aseptic is back! Once again we will start at one end of Bridge Street and finish about a block later. Can you believe this is our 10th year? You have had two years to train for the “Short Race for a Big Cause”. You’ve got this!

The 2021 GR.1K will include pre and post-race parties with great fun and food options for the whole family! The Knickerbocker – New Holland Brewery, will host Registration and Race HQ. Rehydration specials will also be available at all the classic Bridge Street watering holes: The Anchor, O’Toole’s, The Sovengard, Butcher’s Union, Fratelli’s, Condando, Arktos Meadery, Ando, Jolly Pumpkin and Morning Belle! The post-race schedule will include Live Music from 5 Minutes Tardy! Whether you “bar crawl” along Bridge or just party in one spot, you will not want to miss “racing” to End Duchenne!”
