Prove It 5K and 10K 2019

About

We are on year four of this truly unique event.  We will again be teaming up with The Chevy Running Club and The General Motors Proving Ground, for the fourth installment of the Prove It 5K and 10K! You heard right! Not only will there be our usual 5K this year, but we are also adding a 10K

Think you’ve got the fastest 5k or 10K around? Put your money where your mouth is and come race on the test track at the World Famous GM Milford Proving Ground!  We will be running on the beautiful and technical Milford Road Course (we don’t think anyone will be breaking the course record as cars fly on this course at speeds well over 100 MPH!). Prove that you are as fast as you say you are with our one-of-a-kind age and gender graded running race on this historic automobile test track.  While Trivium has many fast, flat courses to get a PR, this USATF certified course is a bit more challenging!

Think you have what it takes to complete both the 5K and 10K?   Race in the Double Event and not only will you get a finishers medal, but also a commemorative stainless steal pint glass!

Megal Medal Series

Prove It 5K and 10K is again a part of the Trivium East Michigan Medal Series! If you complete all events in the medal series you will earn a “finishers” medal to complete the series!  Check out what the Mega Medal Series will look like at the end of December!
