Take on the sun and fun with the 2019 Summerfest Run! Enhanced course. New staggered starts. Same fun. 

Spectrum Health Pennock is proud to host the Summerfest Run during the annual Summerfest celebrations in Hastings, Michigan. Proceeds from the 2019 race will go to the Spectrum Health Foundation at Pennock and benefit the CenteringPregnancy® program, beginning at Pennock this summer. CenteringPregnancy® is a group prenatal care program which helps to improve maternal and infant mortality rates, saving the lives of mothers and babies by address premature birth rates in Barry County.

We are excited to bring some changes to the Summerfest Run. New this year, the start and finish line will be in the same location. You’ll experience less congestion with new staggered starts for the 5K and 10K and enjoy a flat, straight, half mile take off as you separate from the pack before the first turn. The new course has fewer turns and a scenic stretch through the trail at Sweezy’s Pond. These enhancements to the course will make our Summerfest Run, SummerFast!

Do you have what it takes to join the SummerFast Club? Complete the course in 7:30 minute miles or less and you’re an instant member. Perks of becoming a SummerFast member include premium parking and a saved spot at the starting line for the following year.
