What to Expect
Runners will join us for a portion of, or the entire 4-day running event.  We each have our own personal reasons for participating.   Any past participant will tell you that it is the people, the camaraderie, and the sense of family that makes this event very special.  We also have a 39 year history of being the ONLY endurance run in the State of Michigan to support the American Cancer Society!

Our support staff will ensure that the course is well-marked, you are well-fed, and have facilities to shower and ice at Hope College.  Should you need anything during your time with us, don’t hesitate to reach out to the volunteer coordinators to make your request..
