GM’s Run Through The Center 5K


GM continue’s to give athletes an opportunity to run through unique places on their campuses that you normally would not have the opportunity to experience.  With the Prove It 5K athletes get to run on their high performance test track, and now for the second year, runners and walkers will get to 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 age 8 and up can run, and strollers are allowed!

The Warren event will be a part of the Trivium East Michigan Running Series in 2018.  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!

Excerpt from GM Global Security Policy
Guns, Dangerous Devices and Other Weapons
In support of the General Motors Workplace Violence Prevention policy, General Motors will not tolerate the possession
of guns, dangerous devices, or other weapons while on company property including company parking lots. The only
exception to this policy involves security personnel carrying firearms in situations as noted in the Security Section,
Chapter 1 of the General Motors Global Security Manual, law enforcement personnel and armed guards transporting
money on and off the premises, or where General Motors posts or otherwise communicates a different local policy (e.g.,
where General Motors believes this policy conflicts with a local law). Misuse of firearms by personnel authorized to carry
must be reported to security.
Though employees may legally own and carry weapons for personal reasons such as hunting or personal protection, it
remains a violation of the policy to have weapons of any kind on General Motors property, even when they are kept in
employees’ personal vehicles. Weapons are not allowed in company vehicles while on company property or while
engaged in work-related activities. Weapons may not be carried to work-related events even if an authority having
jurisdiction has issued a permit to carry or conceal the weapon. Violation of this policy will result in disciplinary action up
to and including discharge.
Application of this policy does not preclude assigned drivers of company vehicles from the lawful possession of firearms
in the vehicle when they are not on General Motors property or otherwise engaged in work-related activities.
The term ‘dangerous devices’ includes any device, the possession of, which reflects an intent and capability of the
possessor to use the device to inflict personal injury, whether under circumstances of assault or self-defense. This not
only includes martial arts devices and other objects generally recognized as being weapons, but also would include
otherwise innocuous devices that are possessed in such a manner as to reflect the prohibited purpose and capability,
such as, for example a tire-iron, lead pipe or baseball bat stored beneath a vehicle’s driver seat.

** Please note that dogs and bicycles will not be allowed into the facility for this event!
