2019 GM Run Through the Center 5K

About

GM continues to give area athletes an opportunity to run through unique places on their campuses that non-employees normally would not have the opportunity to experience.  While the Prove It 5K lets athletes run on the high performance test track, this race will let runners and walkers experience the grounds of the gorgeous Warren Tech Center.

This event will wind through the fast, flat streets of the Tech Center and give athletes a great opportunity to PR.  The course is USATF certified, and will feature some of the best sights on the campus.  Athletes will be treated to custom shirts, Run Through the Center finishers medals, live results, and great post race awards and snacks.  Everyone is welcome to come race this event.  Bring your kids- children agea 6 and up can run, and strollers are allowed!

The Warren event will be a part of the Trivium East Michigan Running Series in 2019.  Athletes, clubs and corporations who compete in a Running Series event will gain points for themselves, and their teams.  Accumulated points will be added up throughout the season, and awards will be given at our end of the season party!
