Prove It 5K and 10K

About

Update 8/28/2020: This event is happening but has been moved to Indian Springs Metropark.  We are thankful to GM and their commitment to safety.  This move allows us to still put on a safe event, but does not require GM to change their safety protocol.  We will have multiple waves of the 5K.  Athletes competing in the 5K and 10K combo MUST compete in the 2nd wave of the 5K.  Each event wave will be limited to 93 participants.  If we end up having more than 93 participants in each 5k wave, we will add another 5K after the 10K. Due to event size restrictions, spectators will not be allowed at this race. 

2020 Athlete Guide

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 flat Indian Springs Metropark paved trail. 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 pint glass!

This race will be a part of the Trivium Mega Medal as well as a part of the Trivium Individual Race Series and the Club Cup Race Series!  The medals together will form a daisy for this years race. And keeping with the natural vintage theme, the 6 petal medals will be made of wood. The big medallion medal in the middle (Growler Gallop 10 Mile and 5k) will be made of metal and will have connection spots for each of the other race medals!

Maps

Course Maps

    5K:  This course in no way resembles The Prove It of old.  This is a PR style course.  No chance of going wrong on this course as it is a simple out and back.

    10K Course: The 10K Course is again an extremely fast, and scenic route.  Only two turns on the entire course.  We will have water bottles on a table at the turn around.
