Flint Superhero 5K Run & 1K Fun Run

One of the fastest growing and most family fun events in Flint will be returning on Saturday, April 22, 2017. We have an interesting course, a great venue, and the event will be bigger and better than ever! Every pre-registered participant will receive a winking T-shirt and every finisher will receive a custom finishers medal. The 5K Run will be a timed event with age-group awards. The family friendly 1K Family Fun Run will remain a non-competitive event. The 7th Annual Superhero 5K Run promises to provide more fun for the entire family.

Friends of Weiss Child Advocacy Center are hosting this family friendly event. All proceeds will benefit abused, abandoned and neglected children of Genesee County. Please visit weissadvocacycenter.org to learn more about the Weiss Child Advocacy Center.

Just like last year, the 2017 Superhero 5K Run will be held at the Flint Farmer’s Market in Flint, Michigan. The 5K race start is 9 AM, and the untimed 1K Family Fun Run starts at 10:30 AM. We encourage you to dress as your favorite superhero. Dress up or not, we look forward to seeing you there.
