run for fun!

While most Michigan/Michigan State fans will tune up for Saturday’s big rivalry game by eating and drinking, here’s a great opportunity to burn off some calories and steam while talking a little smack to fans of that inferior school.

The U of M/MSU Tailgate Challenge 5k run/walk will take place on Saturday, October 20 at 9 a.m. starting and finishing outside the Flint YMCA, 411 E. Third Street, Flint.

Fans of the Wolverines and Spartans will run the 5k course in opposite directions so they can share their feelings on the morning of the big rivalry football game.  It’s a lot of fun, and a great way to justify eating bratwurst and nachos while watching the game later.

Late registration with a t-shirt is just $20, without a shirt is just $10.  Race day registration starts at 8 a.m.  Online registration is at www.riverbendstriders.com

This is a fun and healthy way to get ready for the big game!
