Epic Races invites you to the fourth annual HeartMiRun Virtual 5K. Benefiting Michigan State Parks, the HeartMIRun takes you off the sidewalks and roadways of the cities and suburbs and into our stunning state parklands and preserves. Discover shady trails winding through woods and forests. Venture onto sunny pathways that border sparkling lakes. Enjoy the simple serenity of running or walking in a setting that makes you feel at one with the earth and at peace with the planet.
To participate in the HeartMIRun Virtual 5K, follow these steps:
To help get you started, we’ve listed some of our favorite 5K courses below. Choose one of these, choose one of your own… as long as you choose to get on out there and get moving!
The HeartMIRun Virtual 5K is is part of the Pure Michigan FITness Series of events and is endorsed by the Michigan Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health, and Sports.
Every HeartMIRun participant will receive a gorgeous medal, along with a HeartMIRun T-shirt and a HeartMIRun auto decal. All HeartMIRun swag will be mailed out on November 26, 2018.
You can participate in HeartMIRun even if you don’t live in the Mitten or UP. Simply go to your state’s favorite state park, forest, trail, etc., and do your walk or run there, then tell us all about it on our Facebook event page!
Please note: Epic Races does not ship swag to Canada or internationally. If you are a resident of Canada or another country and wish to participate in an Epic Races virtual event, please provide us with a U.S. shipping address.
