March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Among cancers that affect men and women, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States, yet it is preventable. Thanks to increased awareness of the risks and symptoms, advances in screening tests and evolving treatment options, the number of people diagnosed and dying from colorectal cancer continues to decline.
If you register by March 3rd, you will be able to select your shirt size.
Yes, but those pushing baby strollers must walk the course and will begin after the walkers.
The Corewell Health Irish Jig will begin at 8:30am.
Walking the course is allowed, but participants must complete the route within 75 minutes of their start time. Walkers will begin their event after all runners have crossed the starting line, at approximately 8:45am. If you cannot complete the course in 75 minutes, you may be asked to finish the race on the sidewalk so the roads can be reopened to traffic. You will be included in the results if you complete the 5K when the finish line closes at 10:00am.
Only service dogs are allowed on the race course. Other pets are welcome as spectators.
Team participants are scored by assigning a point value for the place they finish in their respective age group. If a runner finishes first, one point will be earned. Finishing 55th would earn 55 points. In each team, the five lowest points awarded will be totaled to give the team score. “Cross Country” is similar to golf in that the lowest score wins. Winners are based upon the lowest point totals, not the lowest combined times.
Corewell Health continues to closely monitor COVID-19 and adhere to local, state and federal health and safety standards. Corewell Health will work to mitigate risks related to COVID-19, which may include changing, postponing or cancelling portions or the entirety of the event. Participants are expected to adhere to all rules and guidance.
