GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - If pre-registration is any indication, the 35th annual Fifth Third River Bank Run will have more 25K runners than ever before.
The races are set for Saturday, May 12. Pre-registration for the 25K already broke the event record, race officials said, and registration for all the events is up 10%.
The 5K race has two start times. The 7:30 a.m. start is full, and anyone who now registers will be placed in the 7 a.m. start.
