GR.1K Races to Bridge Street – Downtown GR!
417 Bridge St NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504
The GR.1K is back and will start at one end of Bridge Street and finishes about a block later. That’s right! We are shaking things up again and moving to Bridge ! Don’t worry, you will be able to show everyone what a great athlete you are when you put that .1K sticker on your car.
The 2021 GR.1K will include a post-race party that includes fun activities 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, Kale’s Korner, The Sovengard, Butcher’s Union, Ando, and Jolly Pumpkin. The post-race schedule will include live music. Whether you “bar crawl” along Bridge or just party in one spot, the day will keep runners shaking their booties all!
