The R4R took place in Mt. Pleasant, MI on Saturday, April 28. This race began and ended in Downtown Mt. Pleasant at the historic Ward Theater. The race began downtown Mt. Pleasant and followed a section of paved trails through a few of the city’s parks and trails.

R4R is perfect for runners looking to join their love for running with their desire to do good in the world. R4R has a history of helping others, raising money for those in need locally and globally. This year, 100% of the registration fees go directly to helping the under-resourced in Myanmar. A team of generous folks have offered to cover the cost of hosting this event so that that every dollar you donate will directly benefit those in need.
