This year the Michigan State Parks is celebrating 100 years, as they were established on May 12, 1919. The State Park system has gone all out in creating a year long celebration for this momentous occasion.
So many events have happened this year for the Centennial Celebration, but we wanted to tell you about one of our favorite events that was created. The Virtual Race series was created specifically for the busy individual in an effort to encourage you to get out and explore. One run in The Virtual Race Series is the MI Run, which you can do on any day in between August and November 15th that helps to benefit the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. How do you do a virtual race? Glad you asked!
Register for the event (https://runsignup.com/Race/MI/Anytown/HeartMIRun)
Choose any location and course that is a Michigan State Park trail or other location available to you.
Complete your run (at your own pace!) by November 15th.
Share about your run by uploading your response. Instructions for this come when you register for the race.
Get cool swag in the mail, once you complete the race!
So many companies have worked hard this year to provide merchandise that gives back to the State Park System and we are proud to be part of that effort! Shop on our website anytime to view shirts, stickers and more that help give back.
